This past February I was privileged to hear Joplin school superintendent, Dr. CJ Huff tell his story of the by EF – 5 tornado that ripped through Joplin May 2011. Accompanied with images and video, Dr. Huff delivered a powerful message describing the way his staff pulled together, accessed the damage, the loss, and the way that they pulled together. Tears flowed down this mans face as he recalled the way his staff personally sought out and accounted for every single employee of the school district, as well as every single student. He described the rebuilding process, and the way that the community united in order for classes to begin as scheduled in the fall of 2012. I was touched to the core! I was ready to pack my bags and move to Joplin. I wanted to work for this man. His story demonstrated the mark of everything a leader should have. If he ran for President he’d have my vote regardless of his party affiliation!
