Vance to succeed Williams

Rush County Schools news

RUSHVILLE — The Rush County Schools Board of Trustees approved a plan earlier this week that outlines the procedure in which current superintendent of schools Dr. John Williams will be replaced.

This plan is an outline of what will take place as various roles change over the next two years.

The board approved the retirement of Dr. John E. Williams from the position of superintendent at the end of the 2013-2014 school year.

This plan also calls for the position of assistant superintendent to be filled beginning with the 2013-14 school year. The local school corporation has been without an assistant superintendent since Dennis Chambers left three years ago.

The board’s plan calls for current Rushville Consolidated High School Principal Matt Vance to fill the assistant superintendent position with the understanding that during this time Vance will gain first-hand knowledge in the long-term and day-to-day operation of Rush County Schools.

Upon successful completion of this transition and final approval of the board Vance would then assume the role of superintendent of the Rush County Schools.  

“Please know that I have had a wonderful experience in my time here,” Dr. Williams said. “John Williams is a better person for having been associated with the Rush County Schools. It is hoped that in some small way the Rush County Schools are a little better for having been associated with John Williams.”

Dr. Williams has been the local superintendent of schools since July, 2006.

Upon retiring he plans to, “do whatever my wife tells me,” he said with a laugh, adding that he doesn’t have any firm plans but does intend to, “take it easy.”

Vance is a Rush County native.
