WAPAKONETA — A new superintendent will be officially approved at Monday’s meeting of the Wapakoneta Board of Education.
Friday night board members offered the position to Aaron Rex, who is superintendent for the Archbold Area School District. He has accepted and starts August 1.
Rex replaces Keith Horner, who has accepted the superintendent’s job at Apollo Career Center.
“Aaron is originally from around this area. He knows a lot of the people. He taught at Wapakoneta one time and was also a principal here at one time. So it just a feeling that he would jell really great with the community,” said Board President Ron Mertz.
