Associate Superintendent David Havird was named the new School District One Superintendent. Havird will take over the position effective July 1 and will serve for the 2013-14 school year ending June, 2014.

He will fill the position being vacated by the retirement of current Superintendent Dr. Wayne Fowler, who announced in October that he is retiring at the end of this school year.

Board Chairman Fred Alexander said that the board made the decision to hire from within the district rather than doing a search because Havird not only has the administrative skills, but is a proven, experienced and excellent leader and he also knows the communities District One serves.
