YOUR BUSINESS AUTHORITY
A longtime leader at Nixa Public Schools is retiring, and the district has a successor in place.
Marian House is scheduled to retire from the district on June 30 as assistant director of activities and athletics, according to a news release. She's been with the district for 24 years, the last 20 in her current role.
“Mrs. House has been an integral part of the athletic and activities program for over 20 years," said Brandon Clark, district activities director, in the release. "She has grown into not only a leader among the athletic directors in the state of Missouri, but nationally as well. I am going to miss the passion and enthusiasm that she brings to our programs and wish her the best in her next phase of life."
House is credited with leading the development and implementation of additional programs and teams at Nixa Junior High and working with the Central Ozarks Conference to expand their offerings so Nixa teams could compete.
Her successor, Jeremy McCoy, is scheduled to take on his new role on July 1. A district employee since 2018, he's currently assistant principal at Nixa High School, according to the release.
"He brings years of experience, not only at the high school level, but also with junior high schools," Clark said in the release. "Mr. McCoy has developed a strong reputation within our schools and community as a person who truly cares about the success of Nixa students and programs.”
The multipurpose arena rising at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds & Event Center is planned to include 6,600 seats.
