Editorial: An honor well deserved

Dr. David Fields, former teacher, administrator and superintendent of Danville's District 118 schools, received a much deserved and much overdue honor last week when school board members voted to name the district's administration building in his honor.

Fields, who also served on the Illinois State Board of Education, grew up in Danville's public housing. He knew what kind of challenges many of the district's students faced day after day, and he led the district in efforts to assist every student in succeeding in the classroom. A Danville High School graduate, he served as an example of what hard work and commitment in the classroom could do.
