The Emerson Board of Education (BOE) appointed Brian Gatens as Emerson’s new superintendent of schools on Monday.
“Congratulations… The whole board was in agreement that you were our guy,” said BOE President Mary Reid at a special meeting held to appoint Gatens on July 8.
Pending transition timelines, the BOE anticipates Gatens’ start date will be during or near late summer. “Preferably before the start of the school year,” explained Interim Superintendent Larry Hughes.
