    The Heart of a Leader

    Paralyzed from the neck down in 1977 from a water skiing accident at the age of sixteen, Jeff Eben has a story that audiences need to hear. A promising high school athlete, his plan to play college football ended suddenly. His dreams, however; were just beginning. Armed with nothing more than hope, Jeff began his quest to build a full and successful life. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and a Masters Degree in Educational Administration, he found fulfillment in working with young people, and went on to establish a successful career in public education. As a teacher, coach, and administrator in the nationally renowned Clovis Unified School District, he demonstrated that life in a wheelchair had no limits.

    Jeff had the unique opportunity to create a new high school that serves almost three thousand students in Central California. As the Principal of Clovis East High School, he led the development of a culture where students learned tolerance, respect, and practiced the motto of “feel the love.” Prior to his leadership at Clovis East High School, he was the Principal of Fort Washington Elementary High School, a State Distinguished as well as a three-time National Blue Ribbon School in the Clovis Unified School District. In 1998, Jeff received the Crystal Award for Administrator of the Year in the Clovis Unified School District. He was named Administrator of the Year for Fresno County in 1999, and was recently honored with the Fresno-Madera Counties Music Educators Association Administrator Award and the Central California Music Association Administrator of the Year Award.

    Jeff has traveled extensively sharing his story of hope, perseverance, and love with audiences from education and corporate America. His leadership insights have made him a frequent guest at local universities, and he recently presented his “Feel the Love” educational model at Oxford University in England. Jeff’s mixture of raw emotion, music, and humor entertains audiences

    from children to adults and his message is remembered by all. Jeff currently serves as the Deputy Mayor for the City of Fresno and lives in that Central California Region with his wife, Michelle, and children Jared and Noelle.

MORPHET OUTSTANDING DISSERTATION

    AWARD

Dr. LuAnne Marie L. Forrest

    Director of Curriculum, Professional Development and Special Programs Washington County School District, St. George, Utah

    Thursday, July 31 • 8:50 a.m. • Point Loma Rooms 2-3

    The Five-Year Change Process at a Secondary School: A Case Study

    The accountability movement, federal mandates and the public’s changing expectations ensure that most secondary schools will be involved in some type of formal school improvement effort in the near future. While school improvement efforts of the past focused on surface-level changes and specific innovations, the current movement towards school-wide, continuous improvement involves a more comprehensive approach to change including change in the cultural aspects of the school as well as to its structure (Boyd, 1992; Hord, 1997). Leading the change process in a secondary school can be a daunting task and while there is an increasing amount of professional literature describing a school engaged in continuous improvement, there are relatively few studies focusing on the actual process of getting there, especially in the secondary school. Education theorists have articulated a need for case studies which would help increase understanding of the interrelated factors influencing the change process in real school contexts. This dissertation entitled, “The Five-Year Change Process at a Secondary School: A Case Study,” reports the

    results of a longitudinal, exploratory, single-case study. It was designed to contribute to a better understanding of the interplay between interrelating factors influencing the change process. This was done in order to help educational administrators facilitate needed change in their school organizations more effectively and more confidently.

NCPEA COCKING LECTURE AWARD

Dr. Ron Lindahl

    Alabama State University

    Thursday, July 31 • 1:10 -2:10 p.m. • Point Loma Rooms 2 & 3

    Teaching and Assessing Dispositions in Principal Preparation Programs: A Conundrum

    The topic for this year’s Cocking Lecture stems from an exploratory research study the presenter conducted last year on the treatment of dispositions in principal preparation programs. The results of that study are discussed. That discussion is framed around the view that the role of dispositions in principal preparation programs is an issue of social justice because dispositions are one criterion by which we decide who participates in those programs and by which we decide who is granted certification and access to school leadership positions. One section of NCPEA’s Mission Statement challenges us to: “Ensure access and inclusion of under-represented groups into the professorship and

    administration and promote social justice in education.” The decisions we make concerning the role of dispositions in our programs cannot be taken lightly. The presentation highlights some of the underlying tensions and challenges in determining how best to incorporate the teaching and assessment of dispositions into principal preparation programs.

Dr. Ronald A. Lindahl is a professor in Alabama State University’s Doctoral Program

    in Educational Leadership, Policy, and Law. Prior to coming to Alabama State University, he served as a teacher, band director, coach, and administrator in K-12 education and on the educational leadership faculty at The University of Texas at El Paso, Gonzaga University, and East Tennessee State University. He has worked as an educator in the United States, Canada, England, Spain, Brazil, and Mexico.
