Patrick Hunter-Pirtle EdD, Educational Administration (UNL-UNO), 1998

Director of Secondary Education, Lincoln Public School
This is my fortieth year in education. I have three degrees from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I taught for thirteen years. I was an associate principal in a middle school in Junction City, KS. for two years and for eight years at Lincoln Southeast High School. I was the principal at Lincoln Southeast High School for eleven years, and this is my seventh year as the Director of Secondary Education in the Lincoln Public Schools. I was well-prepared by UN-L for every phase of my career path, and I have very fond memories of professors who nurtured, cared, challenged, and pushed me along the way. Dr. Marilyn Grady told me when I started on my doctorate that she wanted me finished writing my dissertation when I completed my last class, and because of her, that is exactly what happened. I will always be a proud Husker alum, Go Big Red!
