A familiar face has been hired to be the new superintendent for Clinton Public Schools.
Tyler Bridges, who was the assistant superintendent for the school district from 2014 to 2017 was approved by the Clinton Board of Educations to take over the role effective on July 1.
Bridges will succeed current superintendent Kevin Hime who announced earlier this year that he has taken the same job for the Lawton school district.
Bridges comes to Clinton with a wealth of knowledge and experience in education. He currently serves as associate director of school and community partnerships at the K20 Center at the University of Oklahoma. Bridges has been the superintendent at Pleasant Grove Pulblic Schools, and principal and athletic director at Agra Public Schools.
Bridges holds certifications as a superintendent and secondary principal, as well as an English, speech, drama and debate teacher. Bridges earned an undergraduate degree in English education in 2004 from UCO in Edmond, and a graduate degree in educational leadership from Southern Nazarene University in Bethany in 2008.
