Gering elementary computer teacher Gene Russel says his goal was to be an administrator by the time he is 30. He has accomplished that after accepting a position as the South elementary assistant principal in Sidney beginning next fall.

Russel says it is a great opportunity and noted the "stars aligned" because his wife Caroline was able to get a resource teacher position in Sidney as well. The couple have a young son Gene Russel III.

Russel has been in his position in Gering for two years. Before that he was a 7th through 12th grade P.E. and health instructor in Minatare for two years.
