FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Network Indiana): The school board for Southwest Allen County Schools has endorsed their choice to be the school district’s next superintendent.
The board voted unanimously to nominate Homestead High School Principal Dr. Park Ginder to fill the leading seat for the school district. He would replace Dr. Phil Downs, who announced his retirement earlier this year.
