Superintendent Search

The Board of Education is excited to announce Dr. Shiloh Vincent as the next Superintendent of schools In USD 418.


The board has engaged in the process of filling the superintendent position for the future of the district.  During the process we utilized KASB to assist with the process. The input from various groups was utilized by the KASB search team. As part of their process, KASB and two experienced KSSA superintendents were used to review the information and contact references.  


Our objective was to find the one right person to embrace what McPherson can be and that has a vision to move the district forward with that vision.


Dr. Vincent has created a draft vision and transition plan that he will be finalizing with the board to help direct activities that will occur as we move towards the end of June, Mr. Mohn’s retirement and Dr. Vincent’s official start date of July 1st 2020.

The Board of Education was notified Friday morning that the candidate scheduled for 
Monday morning has accepted a Superintendent position at another district. The Monday interview activities in the district will be cancelled with the next interviews occurring on 
Wednesday and Thursday of next week.
Thank you.
