Principal Hiring Announcement


St. Croix Central Superintendent Tim Widiker is pleased to announce that the St. Croix Central Board of Education approved the appointment of Kurt Soderberg as SCC High School Principal effective July 1, 2016.  This decision caps a six-week process that began when Dr. Glenn Webb was approved by the SCC School Board as the next Director of Teaching and Learning at St. Croix Central. 

Kurt Soderberg comes to St. Croix Central High School from Merrill High School where he has been the Dean of Students and Assistant Principal for the last nine years.  Mr. Soderberg’s educational background includes a Bachelor of Science degree from UW-Stevens Point, Master of Science Degree from South Dakota State University and Principal and Director of Pupil Services Certification from Marian University. 

Mr. Soderberg’s family is excited to be moving to the SCC School District.  His wife, Paula, and he have three children.  Kennedy is a senior at Merrill High School and will be attending UW-Madison next fall.  Sons William and Griffin will be in 10th and 9th grade respectively at SCC.  Mr. Soderberg stated “As a leader, I have two areas of focus.  First, I believe in building strong trusting relationships with the staff, students and families throughout the building, district, and community.  This type of relationship can only be cultivated through sincere interactions, empathy, and honesty.  Secondly, it is my responsibility to model an attitude of servant-leadership.  I have found my greatest personal satisfaction and professional success when I approach each situation from the position of serving others.” 

St. Croix Central received forty two applications for the High School Principal position.  Of those forty two applicants, six were selected for personal interviews with three separate committees totaling twenty eight SCC staff, parents and students.  Three candidates were recommended as finalists and were interviewed a second time by the SCC administrative team.  Kurt Soderberg was the administrative team’s top candidate and was recommended to the SCC School Board for approval at the May 2nd Board Learning and Special Meeting. 

Kurt Soderberg commented, “I am very excited to be joining a district so clearly committed to academic and personal excellence for all.  My family and I are looking forward to joining the Panther family.”
