CHURUBUSCO â€” Smith-Green Community Schools Board of School Trustees named a new athletic director, beginning in the 2013-14 school year.
Jeremy Dexter, currently at Eastern High School in Greentown, will take the reins as athletic and extracurricular director for Churubusco Junior-Senior High School effective Aug. 1.
The decision was made official by the school board at a special meeting Monday night.
The position became available after current Athletic and Extracurricular Director Andrew Wagner submitted his resignation in March two years after he assumed the role. Wagnerâ€™s last day was April 30.
Dexter said his first step will be getting in touch with CJSHS coaches.
â€śI want to get in and meet them. Iâ€™ve got their contact information. Iâ€™m going to reach out to them now and begin to build those relationships,â€ť he said. â€śIâ€™ve got a background in coaching, so I really want to get to know them and make them aware that Iâ€™m here for them.â€ť
Dexter said one way he hopes to start making connections with CJSHS is by attending the golf outing that will be put on by the schoolâ€™s athletic department June 14.
