STRASBURG, Ohio - Strasburg High School/Middle School Principal Adam Hall was named the school's new superintendent in a special Monday night meeting.
Hall will assume the position effective Aug. 1, and will also remain as the school's boys' basketball head coach.
“It is an honor to be able to serve all stakeholders in our community in this new role, including our amazing students and staff," Hall said. "I am committed to building on past successes to create new and exciting opportunities and experiences. It is my honor to continue moving this district forward while maintaining the tradition of excellence that has exemplified Strasburg Schools since its inception.”
Hall also thanked outgoing superintendent Cindy Brown, who announced her retirement back in May.
“I would like to thank Cindy Brown for her seven years of service to this district. I look forward to building on the foundation she has laid.”
The vote was 4 to 1 for the superintendent position, with Dan Donato, Kevin Harvey, Stacy Bitikofer, and Robyn Burkett voting yes, and Diana Flickinger voting no.
For the vote to return Hall as the boys' basketball coach, Harvey, Bitikofer, and Burkett voted yes, while Donato and Flickinger voted no.
In seven seasons as Strasburg's head coach, Hall has compiled a 110-63 record, along with four Inter-Valley Conference championships - the most recent from this past season as the Tigers finished 10-2 (19-4 overall) to share the IVC North title with Malvern. Hall had initially announced his resignation as coach in early 2019, but was re-hired nearly a month later after careful consideration.
