Randy Russell, principal of Coeur d'Alene High, holds his birthday gift, a model viking ship, in the office of his school Friday, Sept. 29, 2006. He just turned 40 years old. JESSE TINSLEY The Spokesman-Review
The Freeman School District has announced on their web site that they have offered the superintendent's position to Coeur d'Alene High School principal Randy Russell. A special board meeting was held yesterday to make the decision. Russell is expected to attend the district's next board meeting, which is scheduled for 6 p.m. April 28 in the middle school library.
News of the decision trickled out into Coeur d'Alene yesterday and the SR's Huckleberries blogger in North Idaho, Dave Oliveria, posted the information. Several people who commented on the post here had good things to say about Russell.
