Names in the News: D159 Head of Business Ops Out, Former Music Teacher Back In

Staffing changes in D159 made headlines this week, with the resignation of the head of business operations and the rehiring of a familiar face in the music program.

As Mokena District 159 prepares to welcome back former music teacher Rebecca Rodey, the district will also see the departure of a relatively new face. 

Director of Business Operations Kirt Hendrick has resigned, effective at the end of July. Hendrick has been with the district just over a year.

Rodey was previously with the district, from 2008–2011, and helped organize the district's music curriculum, which is still in use. Board members approved the hire at a special meeting July 11. 

Hendrick resigned at the same meeting, citing "personal and professional reasons" for the decision.
