The Nevada Joint Union High School District has a new leader. In a short meeting at Nevada Union High School Wednesday evening, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved the hire of Dr. Louise Bennicoff Johnson as Superintendent. Dr. Johnson brings a vast array of educational teaching and administrative experience to the district.
Johnson will move to the area following her start date which she anticipates will be July 22. She and her husband Jeff will begin looking for a home at that time.
Johnson says she will not take any drastic action until she has a chance to meet the staff and community and will take some time before setting goals for the district.
