Responding to the Unthinkable: Leadership Lessons Learned During and After the Recovery of a School Explosion
On August 2nd, 2017, a natural gas explosion at Minnehaha Academy's Upper school
destroyed two buildings and claimed the lives of two Minnehaha staff members. One
month later the Upper school opened its doors and welcomed students to a temporary
facility that required a design/build process and a lot of good people making quick
decisions. Upper school principal Jason Wenschlag will share lessons learned from the
initial recovery and change process, as well as what has transpired since that time.
