MRH Middle School Principal Joins Advisory Board of Civic Arts Company

MRH Middle School Principal Mike Dittrich was recently named an advisor to Civic Arts Company, a Missouri non-profit which addresses issues of social injustice to foster understanding and community development. Last year, CAC presented a free live performance of the Studs Terkel play "Race" at the MRH middle school theatre. 

"Our goals and his are fully aligned," says CAC director Terry Weiss. "And he is helping us to make our product better. Following our visit he continued the relationship, using our survey results to both broaden and deepen our approach. All this is being done collaboratively. No other principal has ever done that before."

"Even more, Mike is a self-described data nerd who is also an environmental activist," says Weiss. "He is helping us improve our survey instrument and collect data electronically. We couldn’t ask for a better partner or advisor for Civic Arts Company."
