Milliron steps down as Posen superintendent

POSEN - Posen Consolidated Schools Superintendent Dru Milliron has resigned to take another job.

The district board of education voted to release Milliron from his contract effective Monday. It also voted to appoint John Palmer as interim superintendent. He is currently serving in the same capacity for Vanderbilt Area Schools, and will serve both districts until June 30, board President Ken Wozniak said. He and the board will negotiate the terms of his contract.

Milliron will leave after working with the district for more than 20 years, nearly six of those as superintendent. When he started, he taught sixth- through 10th-grade science classes, and at one time served as a softball coach.

Milliron wouldn't comment as to where or what his next job will be, but said he took an opportunity that couldn't wait until the end of the current school year.

Palmer has served as the district's interim superintendent before, Wozniak said. He did so for a time before Milliron was hired, and stayed on for a year afterward as a mentor of sorts.

"We've got (Palmer) from now until June 30," he said. "Some time between now and then we'll make a decision on whether to continue with an interim superintendent or to begin the search for a new one."
