Boone Hall

On Sept. 5, the Madison-Plains Board of Education hired Boone Hall to serve temporarily as assistant superintendent to help with the district’s day-to-day business while Superintendent Janice Streit was out of the office due to illness.

The board’s selection of Hall was encouraged by Streit, who in a statement Sept. 5 to district students, parents and residents praised Hall for his knowledge of the job, his past educational experience, and his love for the district.

When Streit passed away on Sept. 11, Hall assumed the responsibilities of superintendent. The board originally hired him for 30 days. Their next opportunity to review his status with the district will be their meeting at 7 p.m. Sept. 18 at the high school.

A Mount Sterling area resident, Hall spent most of his education career at Madison-Plains before retiring in 2000. He started as principal of Fairfield Elementary in 1975. He later served as assistant superintendent for over six years and superintendent for three years. During Hall’s time as superintendent, Streit was assistant superintendent.

“You can sit and talk about Janice all day, about what she’s done for this community and this school district and other districts,” Hall said of Streit. “If you follow the trail, every place she’s been, people like the way she got things done.”

He continued, “She was the type of person who could reach down and prop people up when they needed it.

“It’s too bad she didn’t have more time to work in the district. She had us headed in the right direction. She had a lot of good ideas, and she was bullheaded enough to stay right at it until it got done.”
