Hays School District hires new superintendent

The Hays School District will soon have a new superintendent.

At their board meeting Monday evening, the school board voted unanimously to extend a two-year contract to extend a two-year contract to Ron Wilson.

Wilson accepted that contract.

He currently serves as the superintendent of the Herington School District, but will take over in Hays on July 1.

Hays' current superintendent, John Thiessen, announced last year that he is stepping down at the end of his contract. That contract is up on June 30.
