(Girard, Kan.) — Respected school administrator Randy Corns will become the next executive director of Greenbush – The Southeast Kansas Education Service Center, effective Jan. 1, 2019.
Corns, who has been superintendent for the Eureka and Erie school districts, currently serves as chief operating officer for Greenbush.
“I’m excited to play a role in shaping the future of an organization that’s made such an impact on education in Kansas,” Corns said.
The Greenbush board appointed Corns after accepting a letter from current executive director Mike Bodensteiner indicating his intent to retire at the end of the calendar year. Corns was Bodensteiner’s recommended successor.
“Randy’s knowledge of Greenbush, as well as his experience as a superintendent and former member of the Superintendent Advisory Council, will serve him well in the years to come,” Bodensteiner said.
Corns, who lives with his family in Altoona, has degrees from Pittsburg State University and Fort Hays State University.
Greenbush is governed by a board of education comprised of representatives from the five educational entities that signed the interlocal agreement creating the service center in 1976: USD 101 Erie, USD 248 Girard, USD 508 Baxter Springs, USD 366 Yates Center, and Fort Scott Community College.
Greenbush serves learners of all ages through partnerships with schools, communities, and agencies statewide. Underlying its diverse range of services and supports is one central mission: to ensure equal educational opportunities for all.
