The Rodel Foundation Welcomes C.R. McLeod

I am pleased to introduce myself as the newest member of the Rodel Foundation team! I am a graduate of John Dickinson High School and the University of Delaware and am proud to be a lifelong Delawarean.

In my new role as Communications Director, I will be working to share with the community the exciting work taking place to build a world-class school system for all Delaware children. As a father and an uncle, I have a personal interest in seeing our schools and children succeed, and as a citizen, having an education system that is meeting the needs of all students as they grow is vital for a strong future of our state.

I had the opportunity to work in government with U.S. Senator Tom Carper and with U.S. Senator Chris Coons during his time as New Castle County Executive. One of the most important things I have learned through those experiences is that though everyone will not always agree on the issues, Delaware is  fortunate to have so many dedicated individuals working to make a positive difference in our communities.* With state spending of nearly $1.2 billion annually on the education of more than 130,000 children, it is critical that education remains at the forefront of important issues we as citizens should be focused upon and working to improve.   

I look forward to settling in and being a part of the progress to give our students and teachers the tools and skills they deserve to enhance the education experience and ensure our children are ready to excel in their post scholastic careers.
