The North Dakota Council of Educational Leaders would like to thank Dr. Russell Ziegler for his contributions to the organization over the years. Russ will be serving as the new Superintendent for the Elgin/New Leipzig School District. In the NDCEL office, Russ is known as the person to always lend a helping hand. He was the one to pick up or drop off anyone who was getting their tires changed, would hang picture frames up in offices, give advice, lend a listening ear, bring smiles to faces with his jokes (including his infamous dad jokes), and do many great and kind deeds. NDCEL wishes Russ all the best in his next step of his journey! You will still be seeing him around at conferences and in the K-12 field! #NDCEL #LeadersMatter
