A new superintendent has been named at USD 320 Wamego.

At a special meeting Monday, via Zoom, the Wamego School Board announced the hiring of Rob McKim, who currently serves as Principal at Lansing High School. He was selected from a pool of four finalists that interviewed last week with the board.

McKim is a rural Sabetha native with 28 years in education, including the last four years at Lansing. In 2013, he was named Principal of the Year while working at Baldwin High School.

In a statement Monday, the board said it was impressed with McKim’s innovative ideas, ability to utilize data, but most importantly his understanding and expectations around the engagement of students and parents in the education process.

McKim will start with the district July 1st at an annual salary of $135,000.

Greg Mann will continue to lead the district on an interim basis through June 30.
