After the previous superintendent resigned and a long search for her replacement ensued – LeRoy Central Schools finally have a new superintendent.
Kimberly Cox will take over at LeRoy on Monday, December 27th. Cox is a veteran of the education world, having worked as a teacher and principal in the Wayne Central School District in Ontario County. For the past 5 years, she has served as the Assistant Superintendent for Instruction at Wayne Central.
Cox was hired after LeRoy Board of Education President Donald Hobart says he and the board have every confidence Cox can do the job, and do it well.
"We started out with over 43 applicants in the process, which is double the typical state average," says Hobart. "Kim Cox has had 26 years of experience at the Wayne Central School District in a variety of positions.
"That's really what we were looking for to help LeRoy continuously move forward."
David DeLoria has been serving as interim superintendent since May. This was his second time serving as interim superintendent for LeRoy. Hobart says DeLoria has done a commendable job.
"He leads from the heart," Hobart insists. "He is so well-respected and well-liked by individuals, he's such an enthusiastic leader - he's just done an outstanding job for us."
Kimberly Cox was not immediately available by telephone this afternoon.
