The Hays school board extended a two-year contract offer to Herington Superintendent Ron Wilson to become the new superintendent at Hays USD 489.
Wilson accepted the contract, and the school board voted Monday night to unanimously approve the contract with Wilson.
The district interviewed four candidates for the position. They also included Keith Hall, Hays interim director of finance; Jamie Wetig, Ashland superintendent; and Mike Gower, Logan and Philipsburg superintendent.
Wilson will take over as the superintendent in Hays on July 1.
Current Hays Superintendent John Thissen will serve out the remainder of his contract, which runs through June 30.
Thissen resigned in October, citing personal reasons.
