GWINN, Mich. (WZMQ) – Gwinn Area Community Schools has a new interim superintendent.
DR. Sarah Croney was officially hired during the Gwinn School Board meeting earlier this week. Croney was unanimously voted to replace superintendent Brandon Bruce who announced his resignation, to take a job in another school district, earlier this summer.
Croney brings over 25 years of educational experience to the school district. She has previously served as an educator, director of curriculum, and superintendent in Wisconsin.
She comes into the job as Gwinn is preparing to undertake a $45 million expansion project. The district is working on moving all of their schools under one roof. Croney says she has familiarized herself with the project, including meeting with architects.
“I’m completely comfortable that this is the right thing to do, this is where we need to go and how we can help kids,” commented Croney.
According to Croney the One Community One School project will continue on the original timeline.
Croney says she is planning on applying for the permanent superintendents position when the time comes.
