Schuyler hires former Alliance supt.

SCHUYLER, Neb. (AP) - The Schuyler school board has chosen Alliance's former superintendent to lead its district in northeast Nebraska.

The Columbus Telegram reports that Dan Hoesing will become Schuyler's superintendent on July 1. He led the Alliance district from 2009 through the end of 2012.

Hoesing says he sought the Schuyler job, so he could move closer to family, but he thinks it will be a good fit because the challenges in Schuyler are similar to the ones he faced in Alliance.

Schuyler school board president says Hoesing impressed the board with his 33 years of experience.

Before Hoesing moved to Alliance, he also led the Laurel, Coleridge, Newcastle and Wynot school districts and worked as superintendent for Laurel-Concord Public Schools and Ansley Public Schools.
