Dr. Robert Haworth, the superintendent of Elkhart Community Schools, will accept the superintendent position at Vigo County Schools.
Elkhart Community Schools made the announcement on Thursday.
The hire is still pending board approval.
In a news release, Dr. Haworth says, “As we sought to relocate closer to family, I looked for a district like Elkhart: a district that has a commitment to student growth and the goal of helping students become college, career, and life ready.”
He has been with Elkhart Community Schools since June of 2012 and says, “Over the past six years, it has been my pleasure to work in a remarkable community and for an extraordinary district.”
Dr. Haworth is an Indiana native. He was previously assistant superintendent at Valparaiso for two years and the superintendent of two other Indiana school corporations prior to that.
Dr. Haworth received his doctorate from Indiana State University in 2004.
