Frank Narducci, an administrator in the Chandler Unified School District since 1996, will be the district’s assistant superintendent for ele- mentary education beginning July 1. Narducci will replace Susan


Eissinger, who will retire in June. Narducci served as a principal at


district elementary and junior high schools and was most recently the director of community education. He earned a National Distinguished Principal Award by the U.S. Department of Education and Administrator of the Year recognition by the Chandler Chamber of Commerce. He is also active in many community service programs.


Susan Eissinger wraps up a 29-year career in the Chandler Unified School District that began as a classroom teacher. She served as principal at Shumway Elementary, leading the school to A+ and U.S. Blue Ribbon recognition, prior to becoming assistant superinten- dent in 1996.


Chandler Service Club (CSC) raises nearly $8,000 for its local pro- grams and scholarships by volunteers and guests during the Club’s 2nd Annual Tequila and Chips fundraiser. The organization part-


ICAN, an East Valley-based nonprofit youth program, receives a $560,000 grant from the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust to support the construction of ICAN’s new facility under construction at Folley Park in Chandler.


The new site, which will be ready in March, will enable ICAN to better provide


its proven-effective youth programs preventing substance abuse, gang activity and juvenile delinquency. “ICAN is an exemplar for building healthy communities,” says Marilee Dal Pra, the Trust’s program director. “Its quality accredited programs provide critical life skills for children and families on so many levels.” A 260% increase in youth daily attendance, coupled with significant municipal growth around the current facility, has limited expansion options and prompted the need for ICAN’s new facility.
