Dr. Ruess speaks on promotion to Festus R-6 Superintendent

(Festus) Dr. Nikki Ruess was named the new Festus R-6 Superintendent beginning this summer. Dr. Ruess will replace the retiring Dr. Link Luttrell effective July 1st. She has held the position of Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning for the past ten years. Ruess says she’s ready for the new role.

Dr. Ruess has been a part of the Festus School District for some time.

The promotion leaves a vacancy for her current Assistant Superintendent position, and the district will begin fielding applications later this week and conducting interviews very soon. Ruess will become just the 6th Festus R-6 Superintendent in the last 77 years.
