Tuesday brought a surprise development in the search for a new Mishawaka School Superintendent.
Dan Towner, the man who has served the last six months as acting superintendent, no longer wants to be considered for the permanent job.
Towner was scheduled to meet behind closed doors with the school board Tuesday night to be interviewed for the job
“And that meeting was going to determine and probably that Dan was going to be our superintendent , I mean, you know, on a permanent basis. And he rethought it and thought about his priorities and decided knowing that's probably the direction we were going to go that he did not want to pursue that,” said Larry Stillson, Mishawaka School Board President.
Stillson says the School Board's job of finding a new superintendent just got a lot harder, because members will have to find someone the community will embrace, as it had Dan Towner.
Towner will remain as acting superintendent until a new superintendent is chosen.
