Friday, July 11, 2014

The School Board announced Tuesday that Jim Cummins, Crowder College’s vice president of finance, has been selected as the Seneca School District’s new superintendent.

The selection of Cummins, a Neosho resident, was announced just more than a week after the board met behind closed doors with six candidates for the position.

“We look forward to having Dr. Cummins at Seneca,” board President Suzanne Brown said in a statement. “He has a solid base of experience in area schools — and specifically in the Big 8 Conference.

We believe Dr. Cummins’ financial experience will be a valuable asset to the Seneca district as we strive to be good stewards of the money entrusted to us by our community.”
