Kearney Public Schools chose new superintendent
The new superintendent says he is excited for the opportunity.
KEARNEY, Neb. (KLKN) – Kearney Public Schools announced their new superintendent on Monday – Jason Mundorf. He will take over the title on July 1.
Mundorf is the current associate superintendent at the school system, where he has been working for the last five years.
Dr. Kent Edwards, the current superintendent who will officially retire on June 30, spoke highly of Mundorf.
“He’s well-versed, his experience speaks for itself,” said Dr. Edwards. “He’s had large school experience, small school experience, he’s had experience at all levels of education. Quite honestly, he’s had it in several states. He’s well-equipped,”
Mundorf talked about his plans for his time as superintendent, saying, “We really need to find those ways that we can partner with the community, our industry, economic development and our chamber to find ways we can have Kearney Public Schools, and our students, prepared for those various opportunities that they may have as they leave us and move onto post-secondary or the workforce.”
The board of education accepted Mundorf’s resignation from his associate superintendent position. He says he is looking forward to the change.
“I am very excited for this opportunity. We have a great team in place, and our team’s ready and willing to move forward in a committed fashion to keeping us going as one of the premier school systems in Nebraska.”
