In this episode, Ed and Jentre visit with April Grace, Superintendent of Shawnee Pawnee Schools. With over 35 years of experience working in public education, April brings with her a wealth of knowledge and proven leadership experience. 

Dr. Grace has won a plethora of awards for her excellence and innovation in leadership, namely she was awarded the 2021 Oklahoma Superintendent of the Year, which is the highest state-level honor an Oklahoma superintendent can earn. She has been a model leader through many challenges, including the historic 2018 teacher walkout, the COVID-19 pandemic, and a devastating natural disaster in the Spring of 2023. 

While Dr. Grace has announced her retirement at the end of this school year, she will continue to be a valued advocate for education throughout Oklahoma. We hope this episode leaves you feeling elevated, empowered, and encouraged to change your world!
