(MASON) – The Mason School District has a new superintendent.
Officials with the District say during a special meeting Monday, the Mason School Board voted to hire White Pigeon Superintendent Ron Drzewicki to become their new superintendent.
Mason Schools have been without a superintendent since Mark Dillingham resigned in June, after serving in that position since 2010.
The Mason Board of Education offered the position to Drzewicki last week and entered into contract negotiations. He was selected from a field of 23 other applicants, including 13 current superintendents. Drzewicki's contract length and salary were not disclosed.
Drzewicki says he talked with students and parents in Mason during his visit and heard nothing but positive comments. He says Mason is a place where people love their school and love their community, and he can't wait to be part of that.
White Pigeon School Board President Mike Krajniak says the Board will meet in regular session next Wednesday and decide if they will hire an interim superintendent and what their next step will be to find Drzewicki's replacement.
Drzewicki served as White Pigeon's superintendent for six years. Prior to coming to White Pigeon, Drzewicki taught middle and high school math and had 15 years of experience as a middle school principal in the Coldwater school district.
