The Seymour Community school board has hired a former local administrator to lead the district while trustees seek a new superintendent.
Seymour Community School Corp. hired Robert Mahan to fill in as temporary interim superintendent after current Superintendent Teran Armstrong announced her resignation Aug. 6.
The district will pay Mahan $11,250 for his temporary assignment.
The board named Mahan, 77, of Seymour, to the position effective Aug. 25 during a regular school board meeting Tuesday. Mahan spent 14 years, from 1982 to 1996, as superintendent of Seymour schools and most recently served as an interim superintendent at Crothersville Community Schools.
He fills in for Crothersville Superintendent Terry Goodin when Goodin serves in the Indiana General Assembly as a state representative from District 66.
“Having served almost 15 years here, I have a very high degree of loyalty to the Seymour school corporation,” Mahan said Wednesday. “I am more than pleased to have the opportunity to assist them during this transition period.”
Mahan said his work at Crothersville depends on the November election and whether Goodin is re-elected.
Besides Crothersville, Mahan said he has served as interim superintendent in eight school districts since retiring from Seymour.
