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.
