From the Dubois County Free Press:
Southridge High School Principal Mike Eineman has officially accepted the position of Superintendent of Southwest Dubois County Schools after the School Board voted 3 to 2 to offer it to him last night.
WITZ News talked to Eineman this morning and asked if he is excited about the new challenge:
The vote of the Board was split 3 to 2 with ‘yea’ votes from board members Michael Broeker, Chris Neu and Kevin Wertman. Board members Shannon Hildebranski and Jerome Buening voted ‘nay.’
Wertman afterwards had this to say about the vote:
Board member Hildebranski stated she felt there was a more appropriately qualified candidate for the position but she looked forward to working with Eineman and supporting him.
Board member Chris Neu stated Eineman’s qualifications and experience as the principal at Southridge for the past ten years were benefits to the corporation.
Eineman did not attend the Thursday night meeting, but talked to Wertman afterwards by phone and accepted the position.
Superintendent Terry Enlow announced his plans to retire upon the completion of the Middle and High School renovation project. Currently, a dedication is scheduled for April 14 and Enlow stated he will officially retire April 12.
The board has not named anyone to replace Eineman as principal at Southridge High School as of yet.
