Warsaw Selects New Superintendent

The Warsaw School District’s next superintendent has plenty of ties to the community.

The Warsaw School Board and Matt Runge have reached an agreement on a contract that would have him on the job by July 1.  His base pay is expected to be about $105,000.

Runge currently serves as the superintendent of the Liberty School District near Quincy.

He is no stranger to Warsaw as his wife teaches there and his children have either graduated from Warsaw or are still enrolled in the district.
