CES principal Young, assistant principal leaving Unit 15 district

CLINTON — A new principal and assistant principal are being sought for Clinton Elementary School after it was announced at the May 16 board meeting that principal Sacha Young will leave at the end of June to become superintendent at Central A & M Community Unit District No. 21 in Assumption. CES Assistant Principal Ben Mooney had tendered his resignation earlier.

“I appreciate the effort and growth that she has made,” said Superintendent Curt Nettles of Young. 

With the departure of both Young and Mooney, Nettles said the district will go “headhunting” to replace the positions. 

Board members also met Clinton police officer Kody Mair who will replace retiring resource officer Mike Bennett beginning with the 2023-24 school year. Mair was formerly a lieutenant with the DeWitt County Sheriff’s office and had served as a youth pastor.
