Photographer / Keeley Miller</p><p>What do military awards, athletic training and technology initiatives have in common? The answer may be surprising: the new superintendent at Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation, Dr. Shane Robbins.</p><p>When you walk into Dr. Robbins office, you notice a wall of accolades and awards, including the Distinguished Hoosier by former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, the Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medal and the Army Achievement Medal. Dr. Robbins has served his country in the United States Army/Indiana National Guard since 1987, including a deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, and continues to remain active as a Lieutenant Colonel.</p><p>As you look around his office, you will also notice a StairMaster in one corner and a Fitbit on his wrist a sign that this accomplished man likes to get a workout in now and then too!</p><p>I try to get in a few steps when I can, said Dr. Robbins. It comes from my days as a certified athletic trainer.</p><p>Dr. Robbins has an extensive background in both education and athletic training. After graduating from Franklin College, he owned a fitness center while serving as a Health and Science Teacher at Blackford High School in 1998. He later returned to graduate school at Ball State University and earned his masters degrees in Secondary Education in 1999, K-12 Administration in 2003, </p><p>Educational Specialist Degree as a Superintendent in 2007 and finally his Doctorate in Educational Leadership in 2011.</p><p>Dr. Robbins landed at the Mt. Vernon School District last July, and just like planning a good physical rehabilitation program, Dr. Robbins assessed and planned for the future at Mt. Vernon. The district has made tremendous progress since his arrival.</p><p>When I took over, the Board had just passed a three year Strategic Plan, so it was more about taking a blueprint and putting an action plan together rather than just coming in and making changes, states Dr. Robbins. "A plan is only as good as the people implementing it, and I feel pretty confident with our staff at Mt. Vernon.</p><p>One important Mt. Vernon initiative that Dr. Robbins had prior experience implementing in other school districts was executing a one-to-one technology initiative (one computer device for every student/staff member). Dr. Robbins launched this district-wide initiative a year earlier than scheduled and has been successful in providing an additional tool to motivate, engage and challenge students in their education.</p><p>Implementing a 1:1 technology initiative requires additional staff training to assist teachers in utilizing digital curriculum in the classroom. Dr. Robbins began the Delayed Start Wednesday program to provide approximately 45 minutes each week of professional development for teachers to work collaboratively, make data-informed decisions, train on the digital curriculum and remain on the cutting edge of education. </p><p>MEET NEW MOUNT VERNON </p><p>SUPERINTENDENT DR.

Students that arrive normal time on the buses are supervised and provided academic activities. Meanwhile, teachers are provided time in their Professional Learning Communities each week to sharpen their instructional skills in a blended learning environment.</p><p>Dr. Robbins also sought approval from the Indiana Department of Education to offer eLearning Days during inclement weather. Only school districts with computer devices K-12 are able to offer these eLearning Days where students continue to learn with their computer device at home.</p><p>Essentially, there are no more snow days. Our first eLearning Day in January was a success both from the students and staff s perspective. Parents tweeted pictures of their children working on their computer by the fire in their pajamas, said Dr. Robbins.</p><p>Dr. Robbins vows to keep the community well informed of what the school district is spending by posting financial and progress reports on the district website at</p><p>People want to know how their tax dollars are being spent and if they are put to good use, said Dr. Robbins.</p><p>The new superintendent has made additional changes that impact the community. Robbins removed the Pay-to-Participate club ($25) and athletic fees ($225) in the fall. He has also made some cosmetic improvements to school buildings and the grounds.</p><p>Sometimes the simplest things get noticed, states Dr. Robbins who said he received numerous compliments on how nice the landscaping looked in front of the buildings.</p><p>Dr. Robbins comes to Mt. Vernon School District following his work at Northwestern Consolidated School District of Shelby County where he also became known for implementing new technology while keeping the budget in line and visible to all.</p><p>Dr. Robbins lives in Fishers with his wife Heather and his two teenage sons Bryce and Brandon who also attend Mt. Vernon Schools. </p><p>Pat Carlini is an experienced television/radio personality associated with NBC in Indianapolis and the syndicated Bob &amp; Tom Show.

Photographer / Keeley Miller</p><p>T he co-owners of Four Day Ray, a production brewery, are planning an affiliated restaurant and bar in Fishers that will feature all their outstanding craft beers, plus an extensive menu of delicious food.</p><p>Co-owner Brian Graham said the Four Day Ray restaurant and bar will occupy more than half of the nearly 20,000 square foot building under construction at 11671 Lantern Rd., at the corner of North Street and Lantern Road in Fishers. The balance of the building also consists of approximately 8,000 square feet of available office space for lease.</p><p>Graham and his co-owners started planning the restaurant in 2012.</p><p>It is great seeing people having a good time, Graham said. Four Day Ray is a great location for the Nickel Plate District, Graham said. We will have it open this summer. People already love the name.</p><p>Four Day Ray is an old railway term that refers to a railway employee who habitually calls off one day a week.</p><p>The term also raises a pint to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd president, for ending prohibition and being known as the drinking president, Graham noted. "I think this will be a big hit. We promise to serve up a terrific selection of craft beer, along with a menu of creative, globally inspired dishes all made with the finest ingredients locally sourced whenever possible.</p><p>The brewery and restaurant will feature multiple unique indoor gathering spaces and what is sure to be the Nickel Plate Districts finest outdoor dining space. I think we will appeal to a wide group of people.</p><p>Four Day Ray will also feature regular live music, ranging from the areas most well-known musical acts to its most exciting up and coming ones. Private events will be accommodated in The Loft, Four Day Rays mezzanine level with a one-of-a-kind bar that overlooks the rest.</p><p>Four Day Ray plans to distribute its craft brews to local bars, restaurants and liquor stores shortly after opening. The brewery will offer patrons exceptional on-site experiences through tours, special events and tappings.</p><p>Four Day Ray is Grahams brainchild. He teamed up with Fishers entrepreneurs and fellow craft beer enthusiasts Chris Welsh and Matt Troyer to come up with a game plan to bring a craft brewery to downtown Fishers. Mitch Ackerman, formerly of Thirsty Dog Brewing (Akron, Ohio) and Mudshark Brewery (Lake Havasu City, Arizona), rounds out the founding team with an accomplished history in production.</p><p>The culmination of our efforts and the opening of the brewery are just a few short months away, Graham said. Everything has come together better than we ever imagined, and we are very excited to be part of the Fishers community. The city of Fishers is doing great things to make this an exceptional place to live, work and play. </p><p>Four Day Ra...</p></li></ul>
