Waynesboro School Board Officially Votes in New Superintendent
May 14, 2013 10:42 PM
Jeffrey Cassell is officially the superintendent of Waynesboro Public Schools starting July 1. The school board announced Cassell as its pick three weeks ago, but voted him in Tuesday night.
Cassell has close to 30 years of experience in the Smyth County school system. He says he's going to do just what kids are taught on their first day of school.
"I'm just going to stop look and listen to the school division, the parents and the community and the teachers, administrators and the kids. I want to stop in and visit buildings, see what's going on in the system, listen to people's concerns, hear their successes, hear their celebrations and commendations and their challenges and concerns and help them to address those," Cassell said.
Cassell replaces Robin Crowder, who has served as superintendent the past seven years. Crowder is moving on to James Madison University this summer as their director of the leadership education program.
