Veiht retirement announced

MARQUETTE — The Marquette-Alger Regional Educational Service Agency Board of Education has announced the retirement of Deborah Veiht.

Veiht has served the MARESA community for the past 39 years as teacher, principal, assistant superintendent and superintendent.

“Deb Veiht has helped MARESA to grow and build relationships in the community and is leaving a strong team for the new superintendent to work with,” said Julie Shaw, MARESA board president. “We appreciate all the hard work that she has done. The board has hired the Michigan Leadership Institute to conduct the superintendent search and we are confident they will identify an outstanding pool of candidates to choose from.”

Veiht said, “While I miss people I have worked with and served throughout my career, I look forward to starting the next journey to explore opportunities and connections in my new community.”

Mike Hill, regional president for the Michigan Leadership Institute, will facilitate the board of education’s search for a new superintendent.

The board seeks input from the regional community on the qualities desired for the new leader. People are asked to complete a survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/BP3QV72 by Feb. 10. A link to the survey also is available at www.maresa.org.

The application deadline for interested candidates is March 27. Application information can be found on the Michigan Leadership Institute website at www.mileader.com.
