Updated: McDermott a finalist for Creston superintendent job
Newton superintendent grew up in nearby Greenfield
Creston's town slogan is "Back to Home." And for one Newton Community School District official who grew up just down the road from there, that may become a true statement by the end of the week.
According to a published report Tuesday in the Creston News Advertiser, Newton superintendent Steve McDermott is one of two finalists for the same job with the Creston Community School District. Creston, located approximately 80 miles east of Omaha in Southwest Iowa, is roughly half the size of Newton.
McDermott said he learned he was finalist for the job Monday night following the Newton School Board meeting that evening. He then communicated the situation to the board members late that evening. He said he was pursuing an opportunity in Southwest Iowa for personal reasons.
