A Word From the President
“In the early 90’s, I met a teacher named Ken Purnell from Eastern Oregon. He attended our original conference in Montesano, WA. After the conference each day, Ken would successfully cold call on local residents to hire him to paint their roadside curbs. He really impressed us, so we hired him to start a new site in Redmond, Oregon. His son Dustin, also a loyal and hardworking young man took over the site when Ken retired. Thorough Dustin, he recommended his sister-in-law, Hillary to start new sites in Eugene and Roseburg, Oregon. What a gift she turned out to be for SI. She is tremendously organized, passionate and caring. Thank-you to the Purnell/McClintick family for your contributions to our SI Oregon success!”

Title: Diversifying Instructional Design to Cultivate Student Success
