The Stevenson-Carson Board of Directors appointed Dr. William Hundley Interim Superintendent of the 1,000 student school district on Dec. 17 during a special board meeting.
Hundley succeeds Superintendent Jim Saltness who resigned for health reasons in October.
Hundley's interim contract will run from January 7-June 30, 2008, at which time the district hopes to have a permanent leader in place for the 2008-09 school year.
Hundley retired as superintendent of the Woodland School District in June 2007 after seven years in Woodland and 34 in education. Hundley began his career teaching history at Kelso High School. He also taught special education in both Washington and Idaho.
After just six months of retirement, Hundley admits that he did not realize how much he would miss education. He's looking forward to helping run Stevenson-Carson School District and the opportunity to work with staff, students and the community.
"Stevenson-Carson School Board of Directors interviewed three qualified candidates for the interim position," said Board Chair Hope Peterson. "We feel that in Dr. Bill Hundley we found a qualified, experienced person who will fit the needs and challenges that face our district in the next six months while we search for a permanent superintendent. We are excited about working with him."
