Assistant school superintendent submits resignation

Former Mountain Home resident Dr. Aaron Hosman has submitted his resignation as assistant superintendent of the Harrison School District effective June 30, 2018.

The Harrison Daily Times reports Dr. Hosman submitted his resignation at the Harrison School Board's December meeting.

Superintendent Dr. Stewart Pratt said, "It's not a good day. Dr. Hosman has been a vital part of this district's successful transition from Dr. Mindy Moss to myself and was very instrumental in seeing the new construction project to its fruition. He will definitely be missed."

In April, Hosman was hired as the new superintendent of the Gainesville R-5 School District. But in June, Hosman, who had been serving as interim superintendent for the Harrison School District, said he had instead accepted the position of assistant superintendent in Harrison and would remain there.

At the time of his decision to remain in Harrison, Hosman said the decision was extremely difficult. However, the Harrison School District was potentially in a bind after he learned of the resignation of the high school principal and the director of curriculum. For that reason, coupled with the fact incoming Superintendent Pratt, who was transferring from Willard, Missouri, would be dealing with his first Arkansas school district, Hosman said he couldn't, in good conscious, leave Harrison in disarray. His contract was for a one-year term.
