MASSP Announces Personnel Changes

Effective July 1, 2014, Phil Lewis will fill the position of MASSP Executive Director replacing Jim King, who has been the Executive Director since 1998.  
In making the appointment of Mr. Lewis, Dr. Kurt Keller, MASSP President said, “We, as a Board, felt it was very important to have a dynamic individual with an extensive knowledge of MASSP and the role of secondary principals in today’s educational environment.  We all strongly believe that having Phil move into the Executive Director’s position will be the very best scenario for the continued health and the positive direction that has been established for MASSP.”
Phil has served as the MASSP Director of Programming and Development for three years.  Previously he was principal at Carthage High School and more recently at Excelsior Springs High School.
Doug Mirts will join MASSP as the new MASSP Director of Programming & Development. He has been with the Columbia Public Schools for 31 years with 22 years in administration.  For the past 17 years Doug has been assistant principal/athletic director/activities director at Hickman High School. He will be responsible for guiding the professional development programs for the association and will work closely with the MASSP district associations.
