Terrell Hill has been named Windsor’s interim schools superintendent.
He will take over for Craig Cooke, who is leaving to become schools superintendent in Madison. Cooke will leave in early November and Hill will assume his duties on Oct. 26, according to the Windsor Board of Education, which voted 8 to 1 to name him to the position earlier this week.
Hill has served as assistant superintendent for human resources since 2014.
Hill, who lives in town, has had two children graduate from Windsor High School and a third is now a freshman there, said Friday that he plans to apply for the permanent position when the time comes.
“It’s a place that has burned its way into my heart,” he said. “This is my home.”
The board of education will conduct a national search for Cooke’s replacement. Cooke was assistant superintendent for human resources in Windsor for four years
