"Amazing Things Have Happened This Year"
Collinsville Public School Superintendant, Lance West, told the chamber gathering Thursday that he could talk all day about school finances and other issues he deals with daily, but instead chose to talk about all the positive things going on at Collinsville Schools.

Melissa Carlson is the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce's manager.

I've been trying to think of an efficient way to summarize the highlights of the past year at Collinsville Public Schools .. which Lance West condensed into a lunchtime presentation to the Chamber ... but that is pretty much what I do full time all year ... so I will instead steer you to just a small sample of highlights already on cvilleok and/or the school web site. -- Ted Wright -- 12/8/2015
