Developing leaders for over 25 school campuses is just one of the many jobs for Mike Kuhrt, Superintendent of the Wichita Falls Independent School District in Texas. With so many campuses, Mike talks about how he starts planting seeds with employees who really don’t see themselves as leaders, but he does.
Additionally, Mike shares stories of knowing God had him in the right place at the right time for the unexpected outcomes when he led one school district through the aftermath of a hurricane, only to move across the state and face near disaster following a flood.
