We are located in Green Oak Township, the only South Lyon School in Livingston County. The concept of the building was researched, constructed, and completed over a time period of two years. Our school has been open since the fall of 2000 and our staff and students work diligently to maintain the integrity of the building and the mission we have identified for ourselves. We are proud to report that it looks exactly the same as it did seventeen years ago when we opened our doors.
Our school was named after the William A. Brummer. He was a devoted, respected and loved South Lyon High School Counselor. We are proud to share his name and very excited to have a member of his family attending our school this year.
Bill Brummer was a dedicated educator. He began teaching at South Lyon High School in 1973, in a special education classroom. He completed his first Masters of Arts in 1977 and a second MA in 1989, both from Eastern Michigan University. Being the very first WDIV Teacher of the Year (1986-87) at South Lyon High School was an award that Bill was honored with, but his comment was that there were many good teachers here in South Lyon. After teaching in a Resource Room environment for many years, he left the classroom and in September of 1992, Bill moved to a position as a guidance counselor. While in this position, Mr. Brummer worked as a liaison between SLHS and Oakland Technical Center (OTC), where many of our students attended to broaden their perspective of possibilities for after graduation. He also worked for OTC several summers in an administrative position. Bill received the Academy of Technology Special Recognition Award from OTC in 1991 and 1992.
On December 29, 1997, while working on his property up north with his family, Bill passed away. His family has been very honored that the community has chosen to remember him with our school.
