It’s been a whirlwind month for Cleveland ISD Superintendent Chris Trotter, who joined the district on May 2 to replace retiring superintendent, Dr. Darrell Myers.
Already he has helped the district weather a storm that forced dozens of students to remain overnight at schools when roads became too treacherous to get them home safely. He has also experienced campus lockdowns due to law enforcement situations and is dealing with never-ending construction projects that are the result of unprecedented growth in the district.
Getting to know people in the community is just another challenge of his new job. To help him along, the Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce and the City of Cleveland on May 30 hosted a meet-and-greet event for Trotter and his wife, Rachel.
The meet-and-greet was sponsored by eight local businesses who donated food items for the 75-100 people who turned out to introduce themselves to the Trotters during the two-hour event.
