Marvin Sims named 2014 Bush Fellow


Marvin Sims

Marvin Sims, dean of equity services at Mounds View Public Schools, is among 24 recipients of a 2014 Bush Fellowship from The Bush Foundation. The Bush Fellowship is designed for people who have already demonstrated exceptional leadership abilities, but who feel they could accomplish even more for their community with focused, intensive leadership development.

As a dean at Irondale  High School, Sims created Students Together Respecting the Importance and Purpose of Education in Schools (STRIPES), a mentoring program that partnered with teachers, parents, community members and business leaders to create a safety net for students. The program has since expanded to Mounds View High  School and the District’s middle schools as well.

In making its announcement, The Bush Foundation explained, “Marvin Sims wants to level the playing field for all disadvantaged students. Marvin will use his Fellowship to earn his Ph.D. and create a comprehensive program that ensures all kids use education as the gateway to their dreams.” Nearly 400 people applied for the 2014 Bush Fellowship.
