Warsaw schools welcomed in their new Superintendent Yesterday (Friday) at the high school. Before the cookies and lemonade, new Superintendent Scott Downing spoke to a crowd of parents and teachers about the excitement he and his family have for joining the school.
Downing is currently the Superintendent of schools in East Prairie and will be replacing James Haley, who announced his retirement earlier in the year. Downing talked about the time he spent learning the lake area as well as the things he would like to see accomplished when he gets started officially on July 1st
The FEMA project which will be on the April election in Benton County consists of a 30 cent tax increase which will allow the district to build a FEMA safe storm shelter & a new performing arts center, similar to projects in Versailles and Eldon that are also on the April ballot.
