Trustees name Jeff Northern new superintendent

Cookies, punch and a three-year contract welcomed Jeff Northern as the new superintendent of Levelland ISD on Thursday.

School board President F.E. Shaheen said trustees picked Northern for the post after spending many hours in meetings.

‘We’re here today to recommend that he sign a contract,’ Shaheen said.

On a motion made by DeEtte Edens, the board unanimously voted to hire Northern. He will begin working here July 1.

The contract calls for the new administrator to be paid $132,000 a year. Northern will receive a fuel allowance and he will use his own vehicle. He will receive 15 days of vacation each year and an annual payment of $3,000 that he can put into an annuity, said Shaheen.

Northern was named the lone finalist for the job on May 5.
