Coming from the world of public education, Michael Lehan earned his senior leadership role through an unconventional route. Never having served as a classroom teacher, he completed six years competing in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns when his athletic career ended and he was tapped to become a dean of students and assistant principal for the Osseo Area Schools, the fifth largest school system in Minneapolis serving 25,000 students in three high schools and several dozen elementary and middle schools. He was soon promoted to principal of Osseo Senior High School, where he led the school for five years and was named 2020 Principal of the Year by the Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals. During his tenure he guided his high school to its first ranking as one of “The Best High Schools” in the nation by US News and World Report for three consecutive years.
