Lanesboro School welcomes new superintendent

As soon as Matt Schultz saw Lanesboro Public School’s posting for a new superintendent, he knew he wanted the job. He applied for it, went through the interview process and was thrilled to hear the news that he had gotten the job. He will be replacing current superintendent Jeff Boggs, who is retiring at the end of June, 2016.

Schultz grew up in Cambridge, Minn., and attended Mayville State University in North Dakota where he got his undergrad in physical education, psychology, and coaching. It was there that he met his wife, Stacey. He coached college football at Mayville for four years before he moved to the University of North Dakota to get his masters in sports psychology. After that, he continued his education at the University of Minnesota where he also taught and did educational statistics and research. During that time, he coached high school football and baseball in Cannon Falls.

In the summer of 2004, Schultz applied for and received the positions of summer activities director and head football coach at Cannon Falls Public School. During his stint there, he also worked as the director of on-line learning and was an assistant to the principal. Four years later, he accepted the same positions (summer activities director and head football coach) at Red Wing Public Schools where he worked up until he accepted the job offer from the Lanesboro school.

Schultz and his wife Stacey have three children, ages 11, 8, and 4, who are looking forward to attending Lanesboro Public School in September. Stacey currently works as a third grade teacher in Apple Valley, but plans to take a year off from teaching to help her family transition to their new home before finding a job closer to Lanesboro. With Schultz working in Red Wing, and the couple’s children attending school in their hometown of Cannon Falls, the family often feels like they’re being pulled in three different directions. That’s one of the reasons why the superintendent position in Lanesboro appealed to Schultz so much. “We’re very excited to be in a community where we can be together.” Schultz expressed.

Schultz and his family are excited to move to Lanesboro and are looking forward to living in a small community. Cannon Falls has a population of around 4,000 so while Lanesboro is smaller, it’s not enough of a change to cause culture shock for the kids. Stacey grew up in Manvel, N. Dak., which is a town of only a few hundred .....
