As a former Unit 5 principal, I have known Mike Essig for many years. I am impressed with his work ethic, community service and experience in law enforcement.
Essig leads by participating in the "Adopt-a-Town" program. He directs by serving as the McLean County Liaison for Child Abduction Prevention. He is respected for being elected "Officer of the Year" and as president of Fraternal Order of Police 76.
As regional superintendent, I am encouraged by the interest Essig has shown implementing an "Adopt-a-School” program, which enhances safety in our schools.
