"It is a tremendous honor to have the highly regarded and effective education leader Dr. Paine join our growing Board of Trustees," said Dr. Chuck Cadle, CEO of Destination Imagination. "Dr. Paine brings decades of robust expertise, valuable insight, as well as a synergistic deep commitment to empowering all students to achieve greatness throughout their educational journeys, that will be instrumental to the our organization. We're thrilled to welcome him to our Board."
Before bringing his talents to his current position at BrightBytes and role with Destination Imagination, Dr. Paine also served as a deputy state superintendent, district superintendent of schools, curriculum director, and is an award-winning school principal and classroom teacher. He is also past president of the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), and has served on the National Assessment Governing Board for NAEP, the Nation's Report Card as well as on the National Commission for Teaching and America's Future. He has held various executive positions in the private sector since his retirement from public service and is the immediate past president of the Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21).
"Rarely in my career as an educator have I had the opportunity to collaborate with an organization like Destination Imagination that effectively focuses on learning the creative process, rather than on the outcome, in the context of STEAM education," said Dr. Paine. "I am excited to join forces again with my former colleagues from the Partnership for 21st Century Learning (P21), Chuck Cadle and Stephan Turnipseed, so we can continue to empower students with the essential skills for success in our evolving complex global world."
Dr. Paine is the fifth strategic senior executive to join the Destination Imagination Board of Trustees this year.
