AGWSR selects Jimmerman as superintendent

A long-time teacher and administrator with area ties has been selected as the AGWSR Community School District’s new superintendent.

     Marty Jimmerson , one of four finalists interviewed last week by the district’s school board, was selected by the Board during a special meeting Thursday.

     “We’re very excited,” he said.

     The Alta, Iowa native is a UNI graduate and took graduate courses at Vitterbo and Drake. He taught at Woodward-Granger, Newell-Fonda and West Marshall and has served as a principal at St. Ansgar and Ballard, a position he has held for the past seven years.

            Jimmerson said he was attracted to the AGWSR position for a number of reasons, including the proximity to Parkersburg, where his wife grew up.
