The Omaha school district has chosen a new superintendent: Dr. Cheryl Logan will take over the position in July.
The Omaha Public Schools board unanimously voted to select Logan from the Philadelphia School District to be the next Superintendent of OPS.
Board members cited her experience and the connections she made during her short visit to Omaha as reasons for choosing her over the other finalist, Harrison Peters from the Hillsborough County School District in Tampa, Florida.
Dr. Logan is the first African-American and the first woman to lead OPS. She will take over for the retiring Mark Evans in July.
