The Inman school board didn't have to go very far to find their next superintendent of schools, as they voted Friday evening to approve the hiring of Inman High School principal Scott Friesen as their new top administrator.
“We are excited to offer this position to Mr. Friesen,” Janell Harman, USD 448 board president, said in a release on the district's Facebook page. “After interviewing three very qualified candidates, we feel that his leadership style, education, experiences, and overall knowledge of the district will continue to allow the district to meet our goals of helping all students achieve their highest potential. We are looking forward to working with Mr. Friesen in his new role."
Friesen, who has been principal of Inman High School since 2004, will take over for current superintendent Kevin Case, who, himself, is leaving for the Emporia school district.
A search for a new high school principal will begin immediately.
