The Gasconade County R-1 Board of Education has named Mr. Geoffrey Neill their next Superintendent. Mr. Neill, who has served as superintendent of the Sturgeon R-V for the past three years, will begin his work at Gasconade R-I on July 1, 2021.

While serving the Sturgeon Schools, Mr. Neill led a successful bond election that focused on district-wide energy improvements as well as school safety and security measures. The district bond funds will also lead to additional improvements throughout the schools.

Mr. Neill said “Sturgeon has been a wonderful and welcoming community. We are grateful to the school board, staff and parents who make up this community for our time here.”

Mr. Neill said “This is a wonderful opportunity for us and we are excited to be close to friends and family.”

Sturgeon R-V School District Board President Misty Doss said "The Board appreciates Mr. Neill's service and we wish him the best."

The Sturgeon R-V Board of Education accepted Mr. Neill’s resignation at a special meeting held February 2, 2021. The district will begin its search for a new superintendent immediately.
