Meet and greet held for Jason McEIrath by Yvonno Sger Jason McElrath, new St@reporter superintendent and high school principal in Hillman, had an oppormnityto become familiar with mem- bers of the community at a "meet and greet" on Oct. 14. McElrath has most recently been serving as dean of students for a district in the Manistee area and had a desire to move into administration. He said he had been applying mainly in northern Michigan ar- eas. He is somewhat familiarwith the Hillman area, he said, because his mother-in-law lives in Ocqueoc and a former boss of his is from Hillman. He applied for the position as principal in Hillman when it was ini- tially advertised, and, when the district decided to advertise for someone who could also serve as superintendent, he was still interested. McElrath is originally from Battle Creek and his wife is from Farmington Hills. "We've done the busy lifestyle. We love the small town atmosphere," he said. He likes rural drivingbetter than city driv- ing, he said, and that his children don't have to face the same issues in a small town that they would have to face in a bigger city. "I'm looking forward to getting to know the community. I want to see Hlllman Schools do just as well as they have in the past and continue to improve," McElrath said.
