Board offers Page contract

Interim superintendent of Thayer Central Community Schools, Randy Page was offered a permanent contract by the Thayer Central Board of Education at Monday evening’s meeting.  

The ink isn’t dry, but board president Tyler Tietjen said the board was excited to keep Page on. 

“He is an extremely good fit for our district,” Tietjen said. 

Page has made an impression in the brief time he has been in the district. He began in July after former superintendent Drew Harris accepted a position at Educational Service Unit 9 in Hastings.

“We’ve had lots of staff members and students say he took time out of his day to ask about how they were doing. They can tell he genuinely cares about the school,” Tietjen said. 

The board offered Page the contract and it must be approved by the district’s attorney before it becomes formal.

“We’re just looking forward to working with Randy,” Tietjen said. 

Page said the first thing that comes to his mind is excitement. 

“I’m just excited to serve,” he said. “I think the way people here treat one another shows their commitment to their community and that really popped for me.”
