At this evening's meeting, the board of education voted unanimously to approve a contract to Kevin Logan as superintendent of Hesston USD 460. The news release submitted to the local newspaper is printed below. The USD 460 Board of Education has announced the selection of Kevin Logan as the new superintendent for Hesston schools. Logan will take the reins on July 1, 2022 following the departure of Ben Proctor, who has accepted a position with the Kansas State Department of Education, in Topeka. Logan has broad educational experience as a teacher, principal, and superintendent. He is currently serving as superintendent of Rock Creek USD 323 where he oversees two elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school, with a budget of more than $22 million. Under his leadership at USD 323, the district completed a $30.6 million bond project and a successful KESA Accreditation Cycle, and implemented a universal Pre-K model. Regarding his selection, Logan said, “It is my honor to be selected as the next superintendent of USD 460. Hesston Schools have a long history of excellence in all facets of education. From my earlier experience as a teacher in Hesston, I have witnessed how proud the community is of its students, teachers, and schools. I look forward to working with all stakeholders; and together we will strive to reach the USD 460 Vision.” Board President Layne Frick says that Kevin Logan emerged from a very thorough search process as the right candidate to lead USD 460. “The Board is confident in our choice of Kevin Logan and certain that under his leadership USD 460 will continue to be recognized as a top school district in the State.” Frick explained that community input, including the involvement of stakeholders, was a key factor in the success of the superintendent search process. The committees included teachers, classified employees, administrators, parents, and community members. “The input from the community as a whole was very helpful to our process.” From a pool of qualified applicants, the Board selected three finalists, who were interviewed by the Board on April 19-21. “As a school board, we feel we made the right selection to serve our students and our community and are excited to welcome Kevin Logan as our next superintendent.”
