As if the first year in a new job wasn’t difficult enough, Mora Public Schools’ new superintendent will have the additional challenges of overseeing the construction of a new high school and educating Mora students in the midst of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Dan Voce was hired as superintendent of Mora schools after the retirement of Craig Schultz.
This will be Voce’s first experience as a school superintendent. Before coming to Mora, Voce was middle school principal at Princeton Public Schools.
Voce received his Bachelors of Arts degree at Gustavus Adolphus College, his masters degree at University of St. Thomas and earned his superintendent certificate from Saint Mary’s University.
Voce said his goals for Mora students and staff are continuous improvement — but admitted Mora set a high bar.
“There are many reasons Mora can be proud,” he said, noting their academic achievement and strong relationship with the community.
He also said he hopes to continue to build connections with the community and staff, while emphasizing self-care and support for all in these challenging times.
“I’m here to serve the community and families of Mora,” Voce said.
