Friends and colleagues: whether you knew him or not, our special education family has suffered a terrible loss. John Prewitt, whose heart was only exceeded in size by his hugs and big booming laugh, has passed into his next glorious life. John was instrumental in bringing co-teaching and other inclusive practices to our state. He was also one of the persons who brought SEAS to countless districts. John served as an area supervisor at the ADE, where he represented compliance and legal aspects with kindness and candor to the districts he visited. He was special education director of Springdale, a principal player with SEAS, and more recently, a consultant with JBHM. Whatever he touched left a mark, and when he spoke with you, you knew he was one of the best. Please pray for his family and wife Gerrie.
