FCSD1 Board selects Dr. Kathy Hitt as interim superintendent

(Lander, Wyo.) – Fremont County School District 1 Board of Trustees Chairman Brett Berg announced this morning that that the board has selected Dr. Kathy Hitt to serve one year as Interim Superintendent. Berg said the Monday evening vote to hire her was unanimous following a series of interviews that evening.

” At the conclusion of the interviews, the Board held a discussion period, after which we came out of executive session and held the vote,” Berg said in a written statement. “Dr. Hitt admirably performed the duties of Interim Superintendent for the District during the 2010-2011 school year.”

“The Board recognizes that changes in leadership can cause a good deal of stress for everyone involved,” Berg continued. “We appreciate the efforts of all District staff over the past few weeks. We look forward to a smooth start to the 2014-2015 school year, and every ones support and best efforts as we educate the children of our community.”
