Capilouto: Important to keep boards "engaged, informed and inspired"
Kentucky School Advocate
By Matt McCarty
Before becoming the 12th president of the University of Kentucky, Dr. Eli Capilouto spent eight years as a school board member in Mountain Brook, Ala.
“I once walked in your shoes,” Capilouto said to open his remarks to Kentucky school board members at the Summer Leadership Institute. “We all owe a great debt of gratitude to those of you who serve as board members because I know you’re volunteers providing your expertise, your experiences, your insight at the community level.”
