Prairie superintendent leaving at end of school year

<p> </p>

PRAIRIE CITY – David Kerr has decided to step down from his position as Prairie City School superintendent/principal at the end of the 2011-2012 school year.

Kerr plans to return to the La Pine area, citing “family issues” and the need to be closer to family members who live in the southwest Oregon region.

Kerr and his wife, Billie, moved to Grant County five years ago from La Pine, where Kerr spent nearly 30 years in the education field and wore many hats, as coach, athletic director and teacher.

Prairie City was his first stint at heading up a school.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time in Prairie City,” Kerr said. “It’s just time to re-adjust priorities.”
