Comstock Park— Dan Holden has been named the district’s new assistant superintendent of human resources. He will continue as co-principal of the high school with Tony Petkus, former assistant principal and athletic director.
Holden said his new position is a result of restructuring due to retirements, as well as staff- and board-identified needs in the district.
“I do really enjoy the opportunity to have an impact on the district as a whole,” he said.“Superintendent Dave Washburn’s “servant leadership mentality meshes well with my own, and so it’s been a great fit.”
Washburn said the district is working on a strategic planning process to identify a long-term vision and a plan to get there.
“(Holden’s) experience in both strategic planning and performance over the past semester in both roles has proven invaluable to our district and allowed me to spend time focusing on where we are going,” Washburn said.
Tom McCutchen, former Ottawa County police officer, was also recently hired as student support coordinator.
