At the regular school board meeting on May 20, it was announced that negotiations were complete and School District 166 officially has its new superintendent, Christopher Lindholm.

According to the Pequot Lakes Public Schools webpage, Lindholm has been superintendent there since July 2013. Before that he worked in the Burnsville-Eagan Savage School District; at Shakopee Junior High School; as dean of students at Edina High School; and social studies teacher and girls soccer coach at Northfield High School.

Lindholm is a graduate of St. Olaf College and holds degrees and licenses issued by Winona State University, St. Mary’s University, and MN State University Mankato.

Lindholm will start as the new superintendent at School District 166 on July 1. He said he is excited about getting to know the community. He said he will be happy to meet with various community groups and said he will have an open door policy.
