Dr. Darienne Driver

MILWAUKEE (April 3, 2018) —  I want to acknowledge the many contributions Dr. Driver has made not only to MPS but to the City of Milwaukee and the entire state of Wisconsin.

Since coming to Milwaukee as the district’s first Chief Innovation Officer, she has engaged partners and stakeholders, building much-needed relationships with a variety of groups and organizations.

Dr. Driver is a professional who cares deeply about the children of Milwaukee. She has dedicated her professional life to making sure young people are prepared for success after they graduate from high school. She has a passion for collective impact as a means to create opportunities and equity for all our students.

I wish her the very best. Her efforts have advanced the district to a better place as we continue to move forward to improve outcomes for all young people.
