Mrs. Charlene Pike has informed us that one of the founders of the then National Middle School Association, now the Association of Middle Level Educators and founder of the Michigan Association of Middle School Educators passed away on September 30, 2013. We think she states it best:
“We have lost a portion of our past. But people like Lou Romano are the reason our middle level education profession thrives today — and can look forward to a promising future.”
Dr. Romano was part of the golden age of middle schools. His dedication to advocating for middle level youth and those who serve them is appreciated and admired. He touched many hearts and left a glow to keep us warm.
Another chapter of history closes as the middle level education world has lost a great friend and pioneer.”
Our condolences to his family on the passing of Michigan’s middle school mentor.
