Freeman School District superintendent Sergio Hernandez has announced that he will retire when his contract comes up for renewal on June 30. He has led the district since July 2006 and oversaw a successful bond campaign that resulted in a new high school and work on the elementary school and middle school that is currently underway. Hernandez has worked in education for 41 years. He was the superintendent in Tekoa for seven years before arriving in Freeman.
A special school board meeting is planned for Thursday, Feb. 3, at 5:30 p.m. in the middle school library to interview two leadership recruitment firms specializing in school superintendent searches. We'll have more on this process in the Valley Voice as things progress.
