    John G. Roeder, 56, was hired Tuesday night (January 5) as the new Superintendent of the North Harrison Community Schools. The vote (5-0) by the board came quickly in a meeting that was for the purpose of hiring the new superintendent only.
    “This board has been looking for a strong superintendent who has been successful as a superintendent,” said board member Gary Byrne during the meeting. “He (Roeder) will be a strong leader for this school.”
    Byrne said that during the last year, the board had three separate searches for a new superintendent, in looking for the best possible chief.
    Roeder retired June 30 after nine years as the superintendent of the Sunman-Dearborn Community School Corporation, a system of 4.300 students in northern Dearborn County, in the Cincinnati area of Indiana.
    What drove Roeder to re-enter the education workplace was a desire to simply get involved in education again.
    “After six months, I knew the choice was to return,” Roeder said of returning to the field. “After taking some time off, I’d like another five years ion education.”
