D29 hires interim superintendent

  • Dr. Everette "Rette" Dean Jr.

A familiar face is returning to help guide Williston District 29 through another transitional period.

Dr. Everette "Rette" Dean Jr. was hired as Williston District 29's interim superintendent during a special meeting on September 27. The action came one week after the resignation of Dr. Missoura Ashe, who had been on administrative leave for three weeks. Ashe had been superintendent since March 2015.

“I look forward to working with the community, staff and teachers. I'm excited about the opportunity to move Williston School District 29 forward,” said Dean, who starts Monday.

Dean is no stranger to Williston as he previously served as Williston's interim superintendent after the retirement of Alexia Clamp. He worked from January 2012 until Dr. Tom Siler was hired in June 2012. Siler was with the district approximately two years.
