This week I saw our young men outside the cafeteria picking up their tuxedos for Prom that will be held this Friday at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. They looked excited about wearing their best suits and stepping out in their finest! This happy scene reminded me to provide you with a couple of updates that showcase IMSA’s finest.

After an extensive search, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Marie Dillon Dahleh as Principal for the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy effective July 1, 2015. Dr. Dahleh currently serves as the Student Information System Advising and Degree Audit Lead at Harvard University. I think you’ll enjoy reading our featured article written about her, “Award-Winning Harvard Administrator and Educator Hired as IMSA’s Principal.” Please join me in offering a warm welcome to Dr. Dahleh as she begins her role as Principal of the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy this July.
