‘Unsung difference-maker who works behind the scenes’
A “servant leader.” That’s how former Sen. Dave Durenberger described his friend Don Salverda, who was honored May 19 with the first ever Lifetime Achievement Award — a beautiful eagle trophy — from the Sales and Marketing Executives of Minneapolis/St. More than 70 friends and colleagues attended.
“It was a wonderful night for Don,” Loren Swanson, a Rotary Club member from Falcon Heights, said of the 79-year-old former Ramsey County Commissioner and Roseville resident.

Thein to say goodbye

Roseville Area Schools superintendent John Thein is set to retire Aug. 1. He told the Review the late Lloyd Nielsen, the former ISD 623 superintendent who’s pictured at right, was one of his mentors over the years. Roseville Area High School’s auditorium is named after Nielsen, a supporter of the fine arts in schools. Nielsen passed away last year. (submitted photo)

Longtime Roseville Superintendent to retire Aug. 1
A room full of kindergarteners may not be the prime example of a place where most people can find a sense of inner zen. But Roseville Area Schools Superintendent John Thein says there’s no better place for him to find calm on a bad day—except maybe a class in the district’s senior program.
And it’s no wonder Thein likes to spend time with the kindergarteners. School board member Kitty Gogins, who’s known Thein since she joined a district committee in 2004, remembers Thein once went to a kindergarten class to read aloud, and when he asked the students what they thought he did, one student confidently shouted, “You’re the President!”
