HOLCOMBE, Wis. (WEAU) -- The Lake Holcombe School has hired a new superintendent.
School Board President Corey Grape says the board hired Columbus High School Principal Jeff Mastin on Monday night. He'll start in July and make about $98,000 per year. Grape says the board picked Mastin as it considered three finalists for the job. He says Mastin is the right fit for the community, and that he has a background in both the education and business aspects of the job. Grape also said that Mastin knows about new mandated areas of education, like the teacher effectiveness evaluation, that the school will likely implement.
Mastin graduated from Hayward High School and also attended UW-Eau Claire. Longtime superintendent Tom Goulet is retiring after his contract runs out at the end of June.
