Can one teacher actually make a difference? Principal Jeff Wiles talks about Don Gilpin:
He has truly made the program a "big deal" within our school. Over the course of the past three years Mr. Gilpin has been able to get our student body and community excited about an academic program like never before. Mr. Gilpin has used an approach that makes both the students and community feel great about what they are doing. …Mr. Gilpin is not afraid to take positive risks with the students and in turn they respond with optimism and success. Mr. Gilpin is truly a champion for Plattsmouth High School and the High School of Business program.
Over the past three years, Don has led the implementation of his Plattsmouth’s MBA High School of Business™ program. His hard work and positive attitude in making the most of the program for his students has been recognized by his High School of Business™ peers as well as the staff here at MBAResearch. Don’s exemplary teaching and leadership was echoed by Bonnie Sibert of the Nebraska Department of Education, who nominated him to be recognized on our website. Most importantly, Don’s students are finding successes in their school, CTSO, and community; we’re betting on more successes when college roles around.
Thank you, Don, on behalf of our staff, your peers in the MBA High School of Business™ program, and, most importantly, the students in whose lives you’ve made a difference.
