The Watertown School District announced on Friday that Heidi Clausen has been named as their new Business Manager, replacing Rich Hohn, who has retired after 27 years with the district. Clausen has been the Assistant Business Manager for the past 6 years, and prior to that was the Business Manager for the Clark School District. She is a Bristol, South Dakota native and a graduate of Southeast Tech and Bellevue University.
The Watertown School Board is expected to confirm her new position at their April 13th Board meeting. Clauson has a husband, Eric, and they have two children, Kye and Lottie.
Superintendent Dr. Jeff Danielson said, "We are excited to have Heidi on board as our Business Manager. She has learned from the best working with Mr. Hohn. She has a great aptitude with her current position and has already made her mark in six years here. I am looking forward to Heidi starting on July 1st."
