Centralia Grade School Superintendent ResignsThe Superintendent of Centralia City Schools is moving on in his career.
Superintendent David Rademacher announced his resignation to the Centralia City Grade School Board during a board meeting on Tuesday. Rademacher has accepted the superintendent seat at Meridian School District in Alexander County in Deep Southern Illinois. Rademacher has been with the Centralia Grade School district since 2009.
Rademacher said during the meeting that he would do everything he can to make the transition as smooth as possibly, and offered to help find a suitable candidate to replace him if the board asked. His last day at work will be June 30th.
Another resignation was formalized during the meeting. Former Board Member and local pastor Quinton Runyon officially stepped down from his position on the board. Runyon accepted a pastoral position at a church in West Virginia.
To fill Runyon's place, the board tapped a 20 year veteran of the Centralia City Grade School Board. Joan White, who served on the board between 1990 and 2011, rejoined the board to serve for the remainder of Runyon's term, which lasts until 2015.
The board extended the contract for the district's treasurer, Thomas Woelfea (Woff-e-uh) until 2015. Woelfea has been with the district as treasurer since 1977.
