Dr. Denise Seger named interim superintendent

An educational leader with more than three decades of years of experience in the field has been tapped to serve as interim superintendent of Concord Community Schools.

Dr. Denise Seger, who currently serves as the Chief Human Resources Officer, was named interim superintendent during the regularly scheduled school board meeting on December 2. Her new role is effective Tuesday, December 3.

Dr. Seger has served students and staff in the field of education for 34 years and has more than two decades of administrative experience.

She holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in Business Education with a vocational endorsement from the University of Evansville. Dr. Seger began her career in education as a business teacher at Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corporation in 1985. In August 2003, she earned a doctorate in Educational Administration and Leadership from Purdue University. 

She joined Concord Community Schools in March 2018 as the Chief Human Resources Officer. Previously, she served as associate superintendent of Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation from 2003-2018. She also served as interim superintendent of Penn-Harris-Madison during the 2004-2005 school year. 

Dr. Seger serves as a member of the Indiana Association of School Business Officials  (serving as president from 2005-2006), the Indiana School Property Tax Control Board, and the Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents. In 2018, she was tapped by Gov. Eric Holcomb to serve on the advisory council of the Next Level Teacher Compensation Commission, a group tasked with providing recommendations on how to achieve competitive teacher compensation in Indiana. 

“As interim superintendent, I am committed to providing stability to ensure that the great work happening in our classrooms across the district continues without interruption,” Seger said.

Seger lives in Granger with her husband Mike. They have three grown children and two grandchildren. 

“Dr. Seger has a proven track record of steady leadership and we are grateful for her support during this period of transition,” Concord School Board President Kami Wait said. “Her ability to navigate challenging situations as well as her varied experience in school administration is an asset to our school community.”

The Concord School Board has begun the process of recruiting and naming a permanent superintendent to replace retiring Concord Community Schools Superintendent Tim Tahara.
