At a special board meeting this week, USD 364 Board of Education formally approved the hiring of Denise Guy as Interim Superintendent for the 2019-20 School Year.

Denise retired from USD 435 in Abilene one year ago and has 32 years of experience in education starting in the classroom and working her way through the system up to becoming a superintendent several years ago. She will formally begin her duties on July 1, 2019 but will begin working with current administration in the next few weeks preparing for a transition in July. Superintendent Bill Mullins had previously tendered his resignation effective at the end of this school year, as he continues a battle with cancer.
