Michele Starkey is a Logansport High School graduate who has spent her entire career with the Logansport schools. She began her career teaching second graders, and moved up, serving as a school counselor, assistant principal, principal, and curriculum director, before being appointed superintendent in 2011.

Under her leadership, the Logansport schools have focused on college and career readiness, with initiatives that include bringing all eighth graders and English language learners to IU Kokomo for tours, so they can see the college opportunity available in their own community.
