The Middle Cities Education Association recently named Dr. Keith Wunderlich, superintendent of Waterford School District, the 2018-19 president of the MCEA Board of Directors.
“Keith has served as a Middle Cities director and is an incredible asset to our organization,” said MCEA Executive Director Ray Telman. “With his dedication, passion and proven leadership, Keith will make an important and positive impact on Middle Cities in his new role as president.”
Wunderlich was named superintendent of Waterford School District in 2015 after previously serving as superintendent of New Haven Community Schools and assistant superintendent of L’Anse Creuse Public Schools.
Under Wunderlich’s leadership, Waterford School District has substantially improved its finances, growing its fund balance from 1 percent to 6.8 percent over the course of the last four years. During this time, the district has also seen a major drop in bullying incidents and made significant strides in educational growth and proficiency.
“I am honored to have been selected as president of the Middle Cities Education Association,” Wunderlich said. “Middle Cities serves as an advocate for local districts to ensure quality educational programs for all students. I am eager to begin my new role with MCEA and look forward to a great year of working with other superintendents across the state.”
