Huff to speak to California Emergency Services Association in October

(From July 28, 2013)
Joplin R-8 Superintendent C. J. Huff will serve as a keynote speaker at the California Emergency Services Association Conference Thursday, October 17, at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek Hotel in Santa Rosa, Calif. The following description is given of Huff on the conference website:

Leading in CrisisAfter one of the most devastating tornadoes on record destroyed a third of the town, Dr. C.J. Huff, Superintendent of Schools in Joplin, Missouri, led his community in an amazing effort to rebuild—transforming this disastrous tragedy into the town’s finest hour. Huff’s demonstrated leadership helped Joplin schools and the community literally emerge from the rubble in what has been called “A model for those who study resilience” by U.S. Coast Guard Commandant Admiral Thad Allen. Named one of People magazine’s 2011 heroes.
Huff's speech will come just one week before his assistant superintendent, Angie Besendorfer speaks in Phoenix.
