Fort Wayne School Superintendent Wendy (Sanders) Robinson '73 Profiled in Newspaper

June 1, 2004

June 1, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - "After graduating from DePauw University, (Wendy Sanders) Robinson came back to Fort Wayne to take her first teaching position. She continued her professional education, worked her way up through the school system, and became superintendent last July," writes Indiana's Fort Wayne News-Sentinel of the 1973 DePauw University graduate. In today's newspaper, Linda Lipp writes that Robinson "knew what she wanted to do the rest of her life when she was in fourth grade. 'I was in love with my teacher, Mrs. Mary Ray, and I knew I wanted to be a teacher, too.' Because of that, most of the part-time jobs Robinson took on as a child were the kinds of things that helped her build toward her ultimate goal."

Wendy Robinson "credits her parents and teachers and lessons learned in her early jobs for her success," and offers this advice to others: "The most important thing is having a real strong work ethic. If you don't have that, you won't get anywhere."
