The Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial School Board has announced it’s choice for the district’s next superintendent. A total of 25 applications were initially received to replace current Lake Crystal Superintendent Les Norman, who is retiring on June 30th. That number was then narrowed down to 3 finalists, and district residents were given a chance to meet those finalists and ask questions. The final selection for the job was current BOLD Superintendent Tom Farrell. He has been superintendent for that school district for the past 3 years, and has over 22 years of experience as an elementary and middle school principal prior to that. Final action on approving Farrell’s contract with Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial is scheduled to take place during the March 26th school board meeting.
