The Tippecanoe School Corporation is pleased to announce Doug Allison has joined the administrative team as assistant superintendent of personnel. He replaces Dr. Susan DeLong who is retiring at the end of June.
Allison spent the last six years as the superintendent of Southeast Fountain School Corporation. Prior to that, he served as principal at Warren Central Elementary School and South Newton Middle School. Allison started his teaching career at Warren Central Elementary School after graduating from the University of Southern Indiana. He also holds a master's degree from Olivet Nazarene University.
"Allison has extensive knowledge and valuable experience that will translate well in overseeing our personnel department and 1,600 employees," says TSC Superintendent Dr. Scott Hanback. "His expertise in employee benefits and ability to build relationships will be an asset as we continue to recruit, retain and hire highly-skilled and talented employees."
"I was drawn to TSC because of its excellent reputation and the position because I love working with people," says Allison. "I enjoy budgets and curriculum, but working with people is what I enjoy most. I love seeing the passion and energy new educators bring to the job."
The TSC Board of School Trustees ratified Allison's administrative contract at its March 13 regular meeting. Allison plans to work with DeLong to ensure a smooth transition.
