NHS assistant principal Rob Amodio named superintendent

After considering 29 candidates and 5 finalists to replace retiring NCS superintendent Steve Collier, the BOE offered Rob Amodio of Fairfield Township a 3-year contract with an annual salary of $105,000. Mr. Amodio started his 22-year career in education as a social studies teacher at Lakota and Colerain High Schools. He served as assistant principal at Finneytown, principal at Lemon-Monroe High School, and business manager at Fairfield for seven years. The last 2 ½ of those years he was also assistant superintendent before coming to NHS as assistant principal this past school year.

BOE Board President Carolyn Atwood told the Enquirer, “He has good experience at a bigger district. He’s only been here a year. We did not realize how enthusiastic he is about our community. He’s ready to hit the ground running, and we need him to.” Mr. Amodio starts August 1 and will work with Steve Collier until he retires December 31. We wish him much success.
