Kpat3129.jpg

Kim Pate was named as one of the “Women of Influence” by the Springfield Business Journal. She started coaching athletics before becoming an assistant athletic director. Pate was the first woman to be accepted as the athletic director at the University of Illinois Springfield in 2011. She sees the importance for a town like Springfield to have a connection to the university and their hometown sports team. Every student athlete must complete a minimum of 10 hours of community service. This partnership helps the university support the community, while the community becomes more engaged in the university and athletic events.

I had the opportunity to photograph Jennifer Gill, Superintendent of District 186. She is pleased with a district-wide theme called “a culture for learning.” This is building a culture in the schools engaging kids to learning at new and exciting levels, utilizing technology and learning strategies to help them connect with what happens in the classroom to the real world. Helping to build a place where kids want to be everyday.
