Chastain Named Mexico Public Schools Superintendent

The Mexico Public Schools has a new Superintendent.

Melissa Chastain was appointed to the position following a unanimous vote of the school board at last night’s (Tuesday’s) meeting.

Chastain was appointed Interim Superintendent in May and in a release from the board, they “believe Mrs. Chastain has very effectively managed the Mexico School District since her appointment to Interim Superintendent.”

The district will now begin the process of posting the position of Assistant Superintendent for the 2022 – 2023 school year and plans to have the position posted at the end of November.
