The Missoula County Public Schools board offered its superintendent position to Micah Hill at its Tuesday meeting.

Hill, who is currently the superintendent at Kalispell Public Schools, was the lone finalist interviewed by the board from a pool of nine candidates after MCPS trustees opted to reopen their search last month. 

“My opinion, was that Micah is a very positive person,” said trustee Jeff Avgeris. “He’s energetic, he’s got a wide worldview, which will be of benefit to MCPS and I’m very much in support of him.”

The trustees met in executive session for about an hour before coming to their decision.

Trustee Grace Decker moved to offer Hill the position, which was seconded by Vice Chair Arlene Walker-Andrews. The board unanimously approved the offer.

Board chair Wilena Old Person thanked Tracy Long, the district’s executive administrative assistant, for her work and support during the search process.

Hill did not apply for the position during the initial search. He said he submitted an application after it reopened, with the encouragement from his three adult children who live in Missoula.
