A former area school district superintendent has been hired as the new superintendent of the Holton School District.
The USD 336 Board of Education voted unanimously Monday night to hire Dennis Stones for the position.
Stones was offered a one year contract at an annual salary of just more than 81 thousand dollars.
He will begin work July 1, 2014 replacing Nancy Meyer who is retiring.
Stones was interviewed for the position during a special meeting last week. Stones is a Sabetha native and served as the superintendent of Prairie Hills USD 113 from 2010 to 2012.
