Anderson selected for supt. position

The Red Wing School Board selected Karsten Anderson for the superintendent position Wednesday night.

Anderson is the current superintendent at Watertown-Mayer Public Schools.

Virginia Dahlstrom, current superintendent at Wadena-Deer Creek, was the other candidate.

The board deliberated for nearly two hours - and had three split votes - before voting unanimously for Anderson.

"Both were wonderful candidates," said board member Emily Baldwin. "Both had incredible credentials... and diverse qualifications."

Board chair Heidi Jones says she feels good about the decision the board made. "I'm just very happy," she said.

The school board will formally approve Anderson at their regular board meeting Tuesday, Feb. 22.
