A former North Clay Middle School Principal is currently serving as the interim Superintendent of the Spencer-Owen Community School Corporation.
Greg Linton was voted by the Spencer-Owen Community School Board of Trustees to fill the position vacated by Marsha Turner-Shear, who submitted her resignation on March 17.
Linton will be filling the position until the end of the academic year.
"I was part of the first graduating class from Northview High School," he said with a laugh.
Linton grew up in Clay County and is currently raising his family here.
His wife, Heather, is an instructional assistant at Jackson Township Elementary. They have three children, Jaclyn, a junior at Northview, Nicole, an eighth-grader at North Clay and Ethan, a fifth-grader at Jackson Township Elementary.
"I was the principal at NCMS for four years (2002-2006)" he said. "In 2006, I came back to Spencer-Owen to become the Assistant Superintendent."
Linton graduated from Indiana State University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education in 1989. In 2005, he received his Education Specialist (Ed.S.) in School Superintendence. He taught in the Spencer-Owen Corporation for nine years before becoming principal of North Clay.
"I enjoy my job and the people I work with," he said. "I have the support from the teachers, staff and members of the administration."
