Sandy Huber has served on the GHACF board since 2013, during which time she has chaired the Grants Committee and served on the Scholarship Committee.
Originally from Hastings, Michigan, Sandy attended Manchester College and Central Michigan University, and received her bachelor’s degree from Eastern Michigan University. She taught for three years in the Reeths Puffer School District before becoming a special education teacher in the Grand Haven School District. Upon earning her master’s degree, Sandy became a special education consultant in the district’s junior high.
“One of the most compelling times in education in the district was to recognize the unique needs of the adolescent population with the shift from a traditional junior high academic model to the concept and structure of middle level education.”
After completing a second master’s in educational leadership, Sandy became the assistant principal at White Pines Middle School, and later the principal.
“My greatest value of leadership is that forming relationships creates the conditions for success of any group, organization, or school.”
Now that she’s retired, Sandy spends her days volunteering, specifically with groups that focus on youth and education.
“Because schools employ the most people in our communities and provide the most critical services to the most important part of our population—young people—this suggests there should be more knowledge about what is happening in schools. As a volunteer, I can share information among community groups to help schools get the supplemental support they need.”
Thank you, Sandy, for all you do for our community!
