BCEF board member Bill Narwold has been chosen to serve as interim superintendent of the Batesville Community School Corporation when Dr. Jim Roberts leaves June 30 to become the superintendent of the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation in Columbus, Indiana.
Narwold joined the BCEF board earlier this year and brings with him valuable insight into the foundation’s goal of achieving superior educational outcomes through creative means. As interim superintendent, he will ensure that both BCSC and BCEF continue the progress that has been made under Dr. Roberts’ leadership.
“As the nonprofit foundation that financially supports many of our schools’ innovative programs, BCEF wholeheartedly supports Bill’s selection as interim superintendent,” said Anne Wilson, BCEF Executive Director. “His past experience as a teacher, coach, principal, and superintendent makes him a natural choice for this position. Since he is already a board member of BCEF, it also makes the foundation’s work that much easier as we wait for the school board to select a permanent superintendent.”
