The central office administrative team of Hays USD 489 soon will be seeking applicants to fill a vacancy left by the recent resignation of Elizabeth Jaeger. Jaeger has been with the district since January 2007 and will be joining the corporate team at Eagle Communications as the corporate brand manager in late September. Jaeger’s last day with the district will be Sept. 12.  

“It is an exciting time for my family and me. It is a great opportunity to be able to continue to work somewhere that makes such an impact in our community, and I am very eager to join the Eagle Communications team. As I leave USD 489, I leave a better person than when I first began. The staff of USD 489 are not only my colleagues but my friends, and many have served as mentors for me throughout the years with the district. I will always be one of USD 489's biggest supporters, and I know that the board, administrative team and staff will always keep the best interest of the education of our children at the forefront of their decisions.” Jaeger said.

Board President James Leiker added: “Elizabeth will greatly be missed as she was a true asset to the district but we understand and are excited for her and her family in this new endeavor. She was a master of all trades, always willing to go above and beyond to better the district. We wish the best for her as she moves forward in her professional career and appreciate all she did for the board, administration, teachers, staff, students and parents of USD 489.”
