      Ishpeming Schools choose new superintendent

      Ishpeming has a new school Superintendent.

      The School Board came to a decision after reviewing a lengthy report on the two final candidates chosen two weeks ago.

      John Summerhill will be taking the reins as Ishpeming Schools Superintendent.

      Summerhill was Principal for seven years at Center Line High School, near Detroit.

      "I felt that we had two excellent candidates, and I think that the report that I did for the Board reflected that, and they agreed. We leaned slightly toward Mr. Summerhill and so we are planning to make him an offer," said David Leverton, Board Trustee.

      The Board plans to begin contract negotiations with Summerhill later this week.
