-- Max L. Phillips, School Improvement Director for Fort Thomas Unified Schools, has been named a Cambridge Who's Who Professional of the Year in Education.

In an interview with Cambridge Who's Who, Mr. Phillips reflected on his career: "I am most proud of helping to turn around a small high school and an elementary school in Arizona. Both had lost their direction and I helped create change in the students." He also had to remove some of the staff in order to effect positive change yet retained positive relationships with many of them.
