Dear South Central Community,
The purpose of this letter is to inform you of a leadership change in the Superintendent's position at South Central. Four years ago, the South Central Board of School Trustees offered me the opportunity to serve as the Superintendent for your community school corporation. Prior to my time at South Central, I served as the Assistant Superintendent at School City of Mishawaka.
In early May, the School City of Mishawaka Board reached out to gauge my interest in returning to serve as their Superintendent. That interest ultimately turned into a subsequent offer for the position. I have verbally accepted the position and will be serving as the School City of Mishawaka Superintendent effective July, 1, 2022.
South Central was a great school corporation when I arrived in 2018. In my opening remarks to the staff, I stated that point and simply aimed to make South Central better. I believe that obligation has been fulfilled and I hope you are in agreement. Nearly one-third of South Central students come here as student transfers; meaning they choose to come here. Knowing that we are the school of choice in the area is a large responsibility to maintain, but the credit for that success goes to everyone that works so diligently to make South Central a great place to be.
In closing, the way this community positively supports South Central is unlike anything I have witnessed in previous positions I have held. In addition, in my opinion, the voting public has done a phenomenal job in electing School Board Members that are student-focused. Working with them has been a true pleasure. Lastly, I would like to thank the students, staff, and administration for working toward the common goal of student success. I have been truly blessed to call this my professional home for four years and I wish everyone reading this letter the greatest success in the future.
Thank you for allowing me to serve as the Superintendent of your school and thank you for choosing South Central for your child's education.
Dr. Theodore Stevens, Superintendent
