Westhoff school board names lone finalist for superintendent
WESTHOFF - David Kennedy, the lone finalist for the vacant Westhoff school district superintendent position, said moving closer to family was a factor in applying for the job.
"I have family, including grandchildren, in the Cuero area," he said. "I am looking forward to getting to know the area and going to work for the Westhoff school district."
Kennedy, 57, has worked in education for more than 34 years, including 15 years experience as a superintendent, most recently in the Onalaska school district.
"I am ready to help promote this school district and help get our enrollment numbers up," Kennedy said. "That's of utmost importance."
Westhoff, a Pre-kindergarten through eighth grade school district in rural DeWitt County, has about 60 students.
On Monday, the Westhoff school board voted to name Kennedy as the lone finalist. It can vote on his employment following a 21-day waiting period.
John Hardwick has served as interim superintendent since the first week of July. Former superintendent Donnie Garrison is now the principal at Cuero Junior High School.
