POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

On Thursday, December 17, Scott Dill was hired on as superintendent of the Poplar Bluff R-1 School District. 

Dill had been serving Houston School District in Houston, Missouri as superintendent since 2012, and just last year was the recipient of a Missouri Association of Administrators regional award thanks to his outstanding work as superintendent. 

Dill is a graduate of Missouri State University in Springfield, where he received his bachelor's degree in teaching.

He then received his master's degree in educational administration from Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri, where he is now working on finishing his dissertation to receive his doctorate in educational leadership. 

He will take over the position on July 1 from former superintendent Chris Hon, who was hired back in 2010 and announced his resignation last year.
