Stephanie Hayden, Racine Unified's director of communication and public information, is moving on.
After 2 1/2 years as the primary media contact for the Racine Unified School District, she has accepted a job with the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families in Madison, "very similar to what I'm doing here, as a communications and media specialist." Before joining RUSD, Hayden had spent three years working in marketing at the Racine Zoo. Her last day here is Aug. 21.
Hayden said, "Things are great here. Dr. Shaw and the 'North Star' Vision will really move students forward. I'm really excited about what's happening." But, she said, the new job "offers a professional and personal opportunity I couldn't pass up."
