Maize school superintendent to join PSU faculty

Chris Christman, interim dean of the Pittsburg State University College of Education, announced today the appointment of Craig L. Elliott as an assistant professor in the College of Education’s Department of Special Services and Leadership Studies. Elliott, the superintendent of USD 266 in Maize, Kan., will be an assistant professor and will teach education leadership courses. He announced his retirement from the district at a school board meeting earlier this week.

Christman said Elliott’s experience and his statewide reputation as an exceptional school administrator make him a “great addition” to the College of Education faculty.

Elliott holds an associate of arts degree from Butler County Community College, a bachelor of science degree in industrial education from Fort Hays State University, a master of education degree in educational administration from Wichita State University and a doctor of education degree in educational administration from Oklahoma State University.

Elliott has been with the Maize school district since 1981 and has served as superintendent there since 1996. In the time he has been with the district, which is just northwest of Wichita, it has grown from just over 1,000 students to more than 6,000 students today.
