Story excerpt:

"Only a couple of days after he took over as the Aurora Public Schools Athletic Director, Casey Powell’s office looked like he’d had it forever.

Autographed basketballs, footballs and photos — most accumulated during nearly two decades in the district — adorn the shelves and the desk already had little open space left.

Powell is quite simply where he’s always wanted to be, or at least where he’s wanted to be for the past 18 years.

'In my whole time in APS, I’ve always aspired to have this job,' Powell said. 'Finally getting to have it is a dream come true for sure…APS is my place.'"
