Dr. Mike Jorgensen
Dr. J was the Washington School superintendent for 8 years, and was a valued Rotarian. He slid into semi-retirement two years ago, and did some teaching at Kirkwood.
He came back to Rotary to talk about his upcoming return to work. Dr. J will be the interim superintendent at Highland School District in nearby Riverside. He said that he had previously been superintendent in western Iowa at a district that was about the same size with many of the same issues as Highland, so he believes he is a good fit and has the background to help the school and community.
Dr. J also noted that he has lost about 60 pounds after discovering that he was pre-diabetic. He has changed his diet and started running again. Thankfully, his body is now eligible to be donated to science.
