The Walton School District names Dr. Michael MacDonald as its next Superintendent. MacDonald will succeed Larry Thomas, who has served as the district’s interim Superintendent for the past two years. It’s a homecoming of sorts for MacDonald as he did his student teaching in Walton over 25 years ago. He earned his bachelor’s degree at SUNY Oneonta and obtained Master’s and Doctorates from Capella University. McDonald starts on July 1, 2020.
