The Camp Hill School District will have a new superintendent by early April.
According to a statement on the district’s website, the Camp Hill Board of School Directors selected Daniel D. Serfass as the district’s superintendent at the board meeting held on Jan. 4.
Serfass currently serves as assistant superintendent at the Elizabethtown Area School District, where he previously held the position of assistant to the superintendent for learning as well as serving as the high school principal. He also served as principal of schools for families of US military personnel stationed in Germany, Spain and Italy, as assistant principal at Hershey High School and Radnor High School, and as a teacher and coach at schools in Allentown and Bryn Mawr.
A graduate of the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland with Master’s degrees from Lehigh University, Troy University and Shippensburg University, Serfass also studied at the United States Army War College in Carlisle and is a retired officer from the United States Navy.
“We are excited to bring Mr. Serfass into the District,” said school board president Steve Karl in the online statement. He added, “as a board, we felt at the end of this process that Mr. Serfass’ deep knowledge base and diverse experiences in leadership, interpersonal skill and professional accomplishments as an educational leader make him a great fit for Camp Hill.”
“Camp Hill is an excellent school district with tremendous potential to move to the next level of excellence,” said Mr. Serfass in the statement. “I am excited to partner with the school board, the staff and the community to specifically define what that ‘next level’ will look like, and provide the students of Camp Hill with a tremendous educational experience. I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with some phenomenal school leaders during my time in public education and in my military service, and I plan on leveraging those experiences in Camp Hill.”
Serfass is expected to begin his new role some time between now and April 5.
