Michelle Rhee raised here, leads Washington DC schools

Here is a good story that has has completely been lost locally. I was familiar with Michelle Rhee's appointment to lead the troubled DC school system, but it was only today I found out she grew up in the area (apparently Rossford). She has been making waves in DC, and her story is something we should all be proud of her, especially since we are all tired of the politics being played on the national scene. Here is a young lady from the area running one of the largest districts in America. She is daughter of Korean immigrants and grew up here and studied at Maumee Valley Country Day School.
