USD 410 board issues 2-year superintendent contract to Max Heinrichs

The Unified School District 410 Board of Education voted 7-0 Wednesday to offer a two-year contract to Max Heinrichs to serve as its next superintendent of schools, starting July 1. He will succeed Steve Noble, who has accepted the superintendency of the Topeka Seaman school district.

Prior to being HHS principal, Heinrichs was high school assistant principal and activities director for seven years and high school physical education teacher for five years. Before that, Hein?richs was a physical education teacher for nine years at Minneapolis High School.

The superintendent search process included two other finalists: James Wetig of Valley Center , who was interviewed Feb. 23 and Craig Marshall of McPher?son, who was interviewed Feb. 25.

Wetig was middle school activities director and assistant principal at USD 262 Valley Center since 2013. Previously, he served with the Valley Center district as intermedi?ate school principal for two years. Prior to that, Wetig was Atchison County Elemen?tary School principal for three years, Ness City Junior High School activi?ties director, teacher and coach for one year, and a teacher and coach at Great Bend Middle School for four years.
