A new era for South Washington County schools
As director of District 833 legal services and human resources, Mark Porter made no secret that he was applying for superintendent jobs in other districts.
After being a finalist several times, he finally reached the top in his home district and officially took over the job from retiring Tom Nelson on July 1.
"It feels awfully right," he said in an interview July 1. "In many ways, it's my dream job and the one that makes the most sense."
