MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich.-- A new person is in charge of finances at the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District.
On Monday, March 17, the MAISD Board of Education appointed Michael Schluentz to the position of Associate Superintendent for Administrative Services. Schluentz currently serves as the executive director of management services for Fruitport Community Schools. He has more than 21 years of experience in school finance at Fruitport, Mona Shores, Saginaw Township and Lake City area schools.
MAISD Superintendent Dave Sipka says Schluentz’s experience, paired with his unfortunate experience as a victim of a Ponzi scheme, makes him valuable.
“When you discover you have been deceived by someone like Dante DeMiro, it causes you to be more cautious and incredibly suspicious. Mike has grown from this tragedy. After working directly with the FBI, he knows better than anyone how to protect financial assets,” adds Sipka.
