Interim Steamboat Springs Superintendent Sandra Smyser has been hired as superintendent of the Eagle County School District.
The news comes two days after Smyser was named as one of four finalists for the full-time superintendent position in Steamboat. She was hired in mid-September to replace former head of schools Donna Howell for the duration of the 2007-08 school year.
Smyser's hiring was first reported by the Vail Daily and confirmed Wednesday evening by Steamboat Springs School Board member Denise Connelly.
"I see so much potential here," Smyser told the Vail Daily. "I'm looking forward to being here."
Smyser will start her position in Eagle County on July 1.
