OXFORD — The Clear Creek Amana school board named Corey Seymour, of Texas, as the next superintendent. He will start July 1.
During Seymour’s 29 years of experience in education, he has worked to improve equity and cultural proficiency, and college and career readiness, develop school leaders and close the achievement gap in schools.
“There is no better place to set sail into a new era of education and emerging academic trends, while inspiring universal leaders and embracing the needs of the community,” Seymour said in a news release.
Seymour has worked as an English teacher, athletic coach, principal and superintendent. He is currently the executive director of leadership at Ector County Independent School District in Texas.
During his tenure as superintendent of Santa Gertrudis Independent School District, in Kingsville, Texas, student participation in Advanced Placement and dual credit courses increased.
The district also achieved a 100 percent graduation rate, which included a historic high in college scholarship and state recognition.
Seymour graduated from Rice University in Houston, Texas. He earned a master’s degree in educational administration from Texas Southern University and a doctorate in organizational psychology from Walden University in Minneapolis.
Seymour “is a charismatic leader that brings a passion for student success and betterment at all levels,” said Kara Prickett, Clear Creek Amana school board president. “We look forward to the impact he will have on our school district and community.”
Tim Kuehl, superintendent of Clear Creek Amana schools since 2013, left the district July 1, 2021, to become superintendent of the East Union and Murray school districts in Afton and Murray in southwest Iowa.
Joseph Brown Sr., a native of Clinton, was appointed as interim superintendent for the 2021-22 school year.
