Jeanne Davis, currently the superintendent of Creve Coeur District 76, has accepted the position of superintendent of Community Unit School District 97 in Lewistown starting July 1st, 2013. Her time in Creve Coeur was marked by political struggles. Davis was placed in administrative leave in January 2010, scheduled to be replaced by Canton educator Lan Eberle, then given a five-year contract after a new School Board was seated in May of that year.
Davis said she is sad about leaving Creve Coeur “for a variety of reasons,” but a lot of good work was done there. She said Lewistown officials understand the situation. (source)
