Lambert hopes trust improved during tenure at CCS

    Larry Lambert sensed there was a lack of trust among the staff and other professionals at Chase County Schools.
    When he came on board as interim superintendent Nov. 1, the school’s former superintendent had just resigned. He noted the number of turnovers CCS has experienced the past five years.
    “They weren’t totally trusting the administration,” he said.
    Lambert went right to work, and after eight months on the job, he believes some improvement has occurred.
    In an interview Tuesday, his last day on the job, Lambert said school patrons want administrators who represent their school well.
    He said administrators like former CCS Supt. Glen Beran and Principal/Activities Director Bruce Vires are good examples of that.
    “Both of them were class acts, I knew them well,” Lambert said.
    “And, that’s what any school wants—showing pride in your school, sticking up for your school and that’s getting better,” he said.
    Part of why he believes it’s happening are a number of “great hires” the board has approved in recent months.
    He specifically pointed to the newest business office staff member, Amanda Vlasin, who has worked closely with Lambert.
    “She complements a great office staff,” he said.
    But it doesn’t end there, he added. He said CCS has a lot of great people on staff with positive attitudes. But it comes down to trust.
    “That’s the secret to success; to trust the board, the administration and teachers,” he said.
    “I think that’s a lot closer now,” he added.
