ACSA is mourning the loss of Joe De Diminicantanio, former ACSA Region 18 Executive Director, who passed away in March 2020. Following his retirement from public schools he went to work for ACSA where he was the Region 18 Executive Director preceding Tom Teagle. “Joe De,” as he was known, lived his life with a great sincerity of vision and values. He was one of a kind and an extremely kind and caring individual who will be missed by many.
