Four new administrators hired

By

Hilliard schools will have at least four new administrators for the 2014-15 school year.

School board members on May 12 hired Randy Snyder as transportation coordinator and Chris Ludban as athletics director at Bradley High School.

Last month, board members hired Herb Higginbotham as principal at Alton Darby Elementary School and Jeremy Scally as assistant principal at Davidson High School.

The administrators begin their new jobs Aug. 1 with the exception of Snyder, whose contract begins June 1.

Snyder will work with retiring transportation coordinator Terry Timlin, whose final day with the district will be July 3, Superintendent John Marschhausen said.

Snyder's annual salary will be $74,000.

His benefits package has not been finalized, said Stacie Raterman, a spokeswoman for Hilliard City Schools.

Snyder is the transportation and logistics-management administrator for Westerville City Schools.

Ludban's annual salary will be $85,000.

His benefits package also has not been finalized, Raterman said.

Ludban most recently was athletics coordinator for Darby High School and Heritage Middle School.

Higginbotham's annual salary will be $84,660. With benefits added, including $22,189 in retirement contributions, his total compensation will be $108,101.

For the past five years, Higginbotham has been a fourth-grade teacher and intervention teacher at Horizon Elementary School.

He has a bachelor's degree in history from the Ohio State University and a master's degree in educational administration from Ashland University.

Scally's annual salary will be $81,600. With benefits added, including $21,387 for retirement and $6,067 for medical contributions, his total compensation will be $111,518.

Scally joined Hilliard schools as an education aide in 2005 and began teaching in the classroom in 2007.

He has a bachelor's degree in English from Ohio State and a master's degree in educational leadership from the American College of Education.
