Skrien to serve as interim HR director

Linda Skrien

South Washington County Schools Superintendent Keith Jacobus has appointed Linda Skrien as the interim human resources director.

Skrien will serve in the position until a new director is selected and able to begin work in the position.

Coming from the Owatonna School District, Skrien served for 15 years as the human resources director and for 15 years as the director of food and nutrition services.

"We are pleased with the wealth of experience Ms. Skrien brings to the district and appreciate her flexibility by beginning immediately and assisting on a part-time basis," Jacobus said. "The Human Resources Department for an organization that employs more than 4,000 people is essential to our work. As a result, it is critical to have someone with experience supporting the needs of the district in this area."

An interim director was needed to replace Renee Raming, who resigned recently for personal reasons. The human resources director position application period closed April 17.
