Hiring of Hastings generating enthusiasm in Gering

Gering School Board President Alan Doll says the selection of Bob Hastings as their new Superintendent is already generating enthusiasm among staff members and the community. Hastings, one of four candidates interviewed for the position last week, has tentatively agreed to a 3 year contract and will officially begin his duties as superintendent on July 1st.

Hastings is currently Director of Teaching and Learning at Norfolk Public Schools and Doll believes Hastings knowledge of curriculum issues will be a big plus for Gering.

For Hastings, it is "exciting" to return home. His parents live in Scottsbluff and his sister Jody Benson is a principal at a Scottsbluff elementary school.

Hastings will be joined by his wife Traci, daughter Jenna and sons Jon and Jonah.
