New superintendent announced for Westside

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Westside Consolidated School District will have a new superintendent beginning next school year.

Scott Gauntt, who is currently assistant superintendent for the Paragould School District, will take over in August.

"My family and I are super excited to become warriors," Gauntt said. "Westside is a good school district with tradition and good extra-curricular activities and academics."

Gauntt said he was thankful to the Westside School Board for helping to make this happen.

He replaces Bryan Duffie who accepted a position last month in the Jacksonville-North Pulaski School District.
