Brand X: Burke’s Tenure Full of Accomplishments

Story here, full post here

Michael Burke announced Tuesday that he’s resigning from North Idaho College, where he has served as president since June 1998.

Officials there obviously saw a diligent, resourceful leader whose strengths matched their needs. We’ve been critical of some aspects of Burke’s tenure here, but we would be seriously remiss if we did not also recognize his assets. And they’re substantial/Coeur d’Alene Press.
