An Adams man with a well-rounded resume as a public school educator is the next superintendent for the Adams-Cheshire Regional School District.

The Berkshire Eagle  reports by a 6-0 vote, the district's School Committee on Monday night unanimously agreed to hire Aaron Dean to succeed John Vosburgh, who resigned three weeks ago, after just one year as the district's top educator. Vosburgh resigned effective July 31, giving up a $127,000 annual salary.

Pending a successful contract negotiation with the school board, Dean could start before the school year begins.

Reached after the committee's decision, the current principal at Crosby Elementary School in Pittsfield said he appreciates the committee's faith in him.

Beth Choquette of Cheshire, an elementary school principal the past 13 years, and Dean were the two finalists out of 13 applicants. The school committee questioned the two for 35-40 minutes each on Thursday.

In the end, Dean's work experience impressed the committee.
