A new activities director/dean of students and a new head football coach were hired by the Aitkin School District at the school board meeting that was held on July 18.
Former Aitkin High School teacher and coach, Cathy Hughes, was hired to fill the full-time combined position of activities director/dean of students and Gordon Forsberg was hired to be head football coach.
There were no internal candidates for either position.
Forsberg was one of several people interviewed for the football position and the only one willing to take the position as it stood. He has coached elementary football and helped with the high school football program.
