     Gov. Rick Snyder Thursday recognized late State Superintendent Brian Whiston's dedication and service to the education community of Michigan by officially designating the state-owned fountain located on the Capitol Plaza in his honor. Throughout his time as state superintendent of public instruction, Whiston led the Michigan Department of Education to keep a total focus on providing a quality education for every child in the state. He passed away in May 2018 from cancer. Snyder said "Brian dedicated his career to serving students and striving to make Michigan a Top 10 state for education," adding "He was a great friend and partner who left an incredible impression on our educators, students and thought leaders, who continue to carry out his vision." Whiston, who was named Michigan Superintendent of the Year in 2014 while serving in Dearborn Public Schools, was a tireless advocate and driving force in the adoption and early implementation of the Marshall Plan for Talent and Career Pathways Alliance. The Governors Executive Order mandates that the state-owned fountain structure, on the Capital Plaza between the John A. Hannah Building and the Ottawa Building, will be known as the "Brian J. Whiston Memorial Fountain."
