The West Central School Board hired a new superintendent during their meeting Thursday night.

Superintendent Charles Mellon said the board decided to hire West Central High School Principal Don Street to take his place.

“Don has been in the corporation, I think, for 12 or 13 years now,” explained Mellon. “He’s familiar with the school and with the community. He’s always lived in the community. His administrative experience has not been in the superintendent’s seat, but the general knowledge of the position I think he’s versed in that.”

Mellon’s last day will be June 30 while Street’s first day will be July 1.

The board will now be actively looking for a high school principal to take Street’s place in that capacity.
