school board honors Mike Zimmers

Springfield District 186 school board members honored and remembered, Mike Zimmers, at the October 17th board meeting and presented his wife, Nancy, and daughter Layne with a commemorative plaque.

Mike devoted himself to District 186, and was a pillar of our school district and community. We lost more than a school board member. We lost a friend who had a deep love for District 186 and a laugh that made everyone feel better. Mike was a person that everyone wanted to be around. His intelligence and words of wisdom helped guide and mentor so many within District 186 and beyond.
