Northern York County school board has selected Ship alumnus Steven Kirkpatrick ’92-’99M as new superintendent. Kirkpatrick has served as a teacher and assistant principal, and he currently is assistant superintendent of Cumberland Valley School District. He holds a master’s of education administration, a bachelor’s in secondary education and principal certification/letter of completion from Shippensburg University.

Kirkpatrick noted on social media, “I would not have had this opportunity were it not for the amazing people and experiences I have encountered in my 27 years at CV. I love who I work with and who I work for and will only look back fondly at my time here. Nevertheless, the call to leadership in a district that, like CV, aligns with my interests and values was too strong to resist.”

Kirkpatrick will begin serving Northern York July 1.
