An Eli Lilly and Co. manager will be the new executive director of the Indiana Charter School Board.

Nick LeRoy will lead the state board, which reviews, approves and regulates some of the state’s charter schools. The charter board released its first annual report this week.

LeRoy had been the global marketing manager at Lilly before moving to the charter board. He joined Lilly in 2007 and held a number of different positions, working on the Cialis brand as well as the global launch of Amyvid, a drug used in the detection of Alzheimer’s disease.

He also worked at Roche.

“Nick will be a tremendous asset to our leadership team,” said Maureen Weber, chair of the charter board.  “We look forward to working with him as the ICSB continues to strive toward expanding high-quality educational opportunities for all Hoosier students.”

The charter board is currently in the middle of its spring application cycle. Members are scheduled to meet May 1 to vote on the applications.

“I am very excited to be joining the ICSB during this period of educational reform and advancement,” LeRoy said in a prepared statement.  “Providing students access to high-performing educational environments that best serve their own learning style and needs is incredibly important, and I look forward to the ICSB being a catalyst to achieving that goal.”

  1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
