Thomas to Help Lead College Board Region


Northview High School Principal Mark Thomas has been named chair-elect of the College Board’s Midwestern Regional Office. His election at the Midwest Regional Forum in Indianapolis means Thomas will serve one year as chair-elect, a second year as chair and a third year as past chair. The regional council, one of six nationwide, provides 13 states with services such as advice on goals for student success, research and workshops as well as being a liaison to the national office.

The College Board serves more than 7 million students a year with SAT tests, Advanced Placement courses and other college-readiness programs. Michigan last year switched from giving the ACT to the SAT exam as part of the Michigan Merit Exam taken by all juniors.

Thomas is in his 18th year at Northview High School, 15 of them as principal. Prior to that he served as athletic director and assistant principal.
