M-G Supt. Deetz steps down to join Anderson schools

Scott Deetz has resigned as superintendent of the Madison-Grant United School Corp. to become the new chief human resources officer at Anderson Community Schools.

According to a news release from Madison-Grant, Deetz will be succeeded by Steve Vore, a veteran administrator who has spent the past 10 years as the district’s assistant superintendent.

“We are excited to see Mr. Vore transition into this position and bring his style of leadership and depth of experience as we continue doing great things within our community,” said Mary Jo Brunt, president of the Madison-Grant School Board.

“As a board, we’ve invested in this plan to ensure a seamless transition. We anticipate a really great school year as Mr. Vore takes the helm as Madison-Grant’s superintendent.”

At ACS, Deetz will assume the position held by Lennon Brown, who is retiring at the end of the school year. Deetz said his familiarity with the district, aided by relationships he has with several of its leaders, was compelling to him during the interview process.

“Getting to know Dr. (Joe) Cronk superintendent to superintendent, I have a great deal of respect for him and the vision that he has for Anderson Community Schools,” Deetz said. “Having that network and those relationships in Madison County made it easy for myself and my family to approach the decision.”

Deetz expressed confidence that Madison-Grant’s educational mission and its role in the community are in good hands as Vore assumes his new leadership role.

“Mr. Vore has been a vital part of the Madison-Grant Community since 2013,” Deetz said. “Many of the successes you’ve experienced had a lot to do with Mr. Vore and the work he is already doing. He’s been an integral facet of the community for many years. This transition is well-deserved and the very best option for Madison-Grant.”

Vore will officially assume his duties on July 1.
