‘We will look ahead without forgetting where we came from and who we are’

For two centuries, Tecumseh has been a place where families have chosen to settle — to put down roots, to build lives, and to educate their children. At this moment, as we pause to celebrate our bicentennial, we have the opportunity to reflect on our past and see how our schools have been and still are at the heart of our community, shaping generations of learners, leaders, and citizens. In my short time as the new superintendent of Tecumseh Public Schools, I have been impressed by the dedication of our teachers, the enthusiasm of our students, and the deep support this community gives to our schools. The ways in which I have witnessed our community rallying around our schools and the very youngest of our citizens speaks volumes to a solid foundation that has been set for centuries.

 As we enter Tecumseh’s third century, my goal is to further strengthen our school system. This includes enhancing our academic and career-related programs, expanding extracurricular opportunities, and ensuring that every student receives the support they need to succeed. We will do this while preserving the values and traditions that have made Tecumseh strong for 200 years. We will look ahead without forgetting where we came from and who we are.

 I am so excited to do this work, and I invite all community members to join us as we work to grow and enhance and strengthen our schools. Your input and support are crucial as we shape the future of education in Tecumseh. 

 To our students, staff, parents, and community members: Thank you for welcoming me so warmly to Tecumseh. I look forward to working with all of you as we honor our past and build our future together. 

 Happy 200th birthday, Tecumseh! Here’s to another two centuries of growth, community, and amazing schools.

— Matt Hilton, Superintendent
