The board of School District 73 announced on Tuesday that it has appointed Karl DeBruijn at its new superintendent.

DeBruijn will take the place of Terry Sullivan, who is due to retire on July 31.

The new superintendent is a long term employee of the school district and has been assistant superintendent for the past 11 years.

According to a media release from the school district, he brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and insight to the position.

The school board looks forward to his stability, leadership and direction and his continued dedication to the school district, the community of Kamloops and the rural communities it serves.

A national search by SD73 was suspended earlier this year when it became apparent those who might make the shortlist were not interested in moving to Kamloops.
