George-Little Rock Hires New Superintendent

George, Iowa — There will soon be someone new holding the reins of the Mustangs. A new superintendent has been selected for the George-Little Rock Community School District.

The George-Little Rock School Board has named Amanda Miller as the district’s next superintendent.

GLR officials tell us that as middle school and high school principal in the Coon Rapids-Bayard School District, Miller has “prioritized mental health programming, in addition to leading the district’s emergency response and management team in reviewing, updating, and practicing district response.” They tell us, “She has worked to ensure a strong school-to-work program by partnering with local community colleges throughout her tenure at Coon Rapids-Bayard.”

GLR officials say Miller holds a master’s degree in educational counseling and is anticipating a specialist degree in educational leadership with superintendent licensure from Drake University this May. Prior to her current position, she served as high school counselor and student services coordinator in the East Sac County School District. Miller began her career as a community prevention consultant and education coordinator at New Opportunities Inc. in Carroll, Iowa.

Miller says, “I am truly honored to join the Mustangs family as Superintendent of George-Little Rock. I am committed to upholding our district’s mission of providing quality education by promoting lifelong learning. It’s clear to me that the GLR communities take great pride in their students, staff and facilities and I look forward to fostering an environment where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally..”

Miller will officially begin leading the George-Little Rock Community School District on July 1, 2024.
