I am beginning my first year as the Superintendent of Zumbrota-Mazeppa schools and want to thank everyone for the warm welcome as we enter the 2017-18 school year. I am new to the district but not to the region. I spent the last 10 years serving as the Goodhue High School Principal. Zumbrota-Mazeppa schools has a lot to be proud of in what we offer the students who attend school here. I believe a communities school is the cornerstone of the community and that a strong school is dependent on a strong community. Zumbrota and Mazeppa are drawing people to the area based on the commitment you make to our schools. The investment you have made in your school system to offer students a vast array of activities and high academic expectations makes Zumbrota-Mazeppa a leader in area schools.Please feel free to contact me at the central office if you have any questions or concerns to share.
