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. We think he can look in the mirror and say, "I'm leaving this place better than it was when I first came here." And that's about the best any of us can hope to say when it's our time to move on. Dr. Burke is leaving to become president of San Jose City College in northern California, an institution with more than twice NIC's full-time student population. 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.
