Congratulations to Scott Olinger, Superintendent of Plainfield Community School Corporation, recipient of the 2018 Suzanne Whicker Distinguished Service Award. This award recognizes leaders who have demonstrated consistent, extraordinary service to the community and/or community leadership, but whose accomplishments have been expressed primarily through the scope of their employment responsibilities.

He has significantly increased access to counseling and mental health services for students in the district and created a partnership between Plainfield High School and Vincennes University’s Logistics Training and Education Center to provide enhanced opportunities for high school students seeking employment upon graduation.
