Mike Niewinski 7 hrs · RIP Scott. Thank you for seeing the potential in my wife and knowing what she could do as a leader. Your passion and love for every student to succeed was amazing. I will miss your firm handshake and talking sports with you at the AT games. My God grant you eternal peace. Message from the school board: It is with great sadness I share the news that District 88 Superintendent Dr. Scott Helton passed away last night, Dec. 10. Scott suffered a stroke in late October and was being treated at a rehabilitation facility. At this time, we ask that you please keep Scott’s family – including his three sons, Scott Jr., Joe and Tommy – in your thoughts and prayers. The family members are incredibly grateful for everyone’s kind words and support, and although they appreciate the thought of phone communication, attempts to visit, and flower deliveries, this time is very overwhelming. Those who would like to send the family messages of sympathy and condolences are invited to do so at www.dupage88.net/MessagesforHelton.

Scott Helton was my cohort-mate at the U of I and we had many fun adventures together during our weekends in C-U many years ago. He was a wonderful leader and colleague. I am heartbroken.
