(MASON) – A St. Joseph County school superintendent has accepted a new job.
According to the Lansing State Journal, the Mason Public Schools Board of Education on Monday unanimously voted to offer White Pigeon Superintendent Ron Drzewicki the job as their district’s superintendent.
The Mason board will begin contract negotiations with Drzewicki, who was chosen from a field of 23 other applicants, including 13 current superintendents.
Mason's Board of Education has been searching for a new superintendent since June when Mark Dillingham resigned after being in the position since 2010.
Drzewicki, 50, says he talked with students and parents in Mason during his visit and heard nothing but positive comments. He says Mason is a place where people love their school and love their community, and he can't wait to be part of that.
Drzewicki has been White Pigeon's superintendent for six years. Prior to accepting the position in White Pigeon, Drzewicki taught middle and high school math and had 15 years of experience as a middle school principal, in the Coldwater school district.
