Gregg Wolf, director of the Carthage Technical Center for the past five years, will become the Carthage School District's new Assistant Superintendent for Business starting July 1.

The Carthage Board of Education announced the appointment after its regular meeting on Monday.

Wolf will replace Dr. Mark Baker, who became superintendent in December, 2017 after 15 years in as assistant superintendent for business.

“Mr. Wolf has a 22-year history of excellence as a vocational instructor, assistant technical center director, and technical center director with the Carthage School District,” Baker said in a written release. “We are excited to have Gregg join our central office administrative team.”

Wolf said he's very excited about the challenge of his new position.

“I'm very appreciative of Dr. Baker and the School Board for putting their trust in me and accepting me for this position,” Wolf said. “I've spent my whole career in Carthage and enjoyed it thoroughly. I felt like there was an opportunity to look for a new challenge in the district and I want to be a bigger part of what's going on in Carthage.”

The Districts top administrative team will now be composed of Baker as Superintendent, Kandy Frazier, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Curriculum, and Wolf as Assistant Superintendent for Business.

The district said Wolf has served his entire educational career with the Carthage R-9 School District, beginning in 1996 as an agriculture teacher and FFA advisor.

After teaching for seven years, he became the assistant director at Carthage Technical Center and served in that capacity for 10 years before assuming the role of director in 2013.

Wolf holds a bachelor’s degree from Missouri State University, Springfield, and a master’s degree from the University of Missouri, Columbia, both in agriculture education. He also earned a specialist degree in career education administration from the University of Central Missouri, Warrensburg.

The district will now begin a search for Wolf's successor as director of the Carthage Technical Center.
