Dr. David Mundy, former superintendent of Sheridan Community Schools, has been appointed associate superintendent of Noblesville Schools, a role the district says will have responsibility for both human resources and operations across the district.
Mundy’s appointment will fill the vacancies created by the departures earlier this year of Dr. Steve Stephanoff, former assistant superintendent and human resources director, and Jeff Bragg, former operations director. During the transition, Robin Phelps, executive director of business, served as interim operations director, and Marnie Cooke, director of marketing and communications, had served as interim human resource director. The district said Mundy will begin transitioning to the new role immediately, but will not officially be on board until July 1.
“Dave is such a highly respected member of the education community,” said Supt. Dr. Beth Niedermeyer. “He quickly rose to the top of our selection process based on his proven leadership ability, solid human resource and operations background, and passion for the Noblesville community. He has a strong personal drive for action and I’m confident he will be a valuable addition to our leadership team.”
During his time at Sheridan Community Schools, Mundy implemented 1:1 student technology initiatives, developed a preschool/afterschool care program and led a successful referendum funding initiative. Sheridan Community Schools was recently named to the Indiana 100 Best Places to Work list and also became the first district in the state to completely transition to solar power, saving the district an estimated $6 million in the coming years.
“I’m so incredibly thankful for the opportunity I’ve had to serve the Sheridan community and am excited to embrace this next, new challenge,” Mundy said. “Few districts can boast the accomplishments and vision that Noblesville Schools can. Being part of that culture of excellence in the community where I live and where my children attend school is a dream come true. I’m anxious to start meeting Noblesville staff, learning about current needs, and making contributions where I can.”
Prior to his role at Sheridan, Mundy served as the assistant superintendent of Westfield Washington Schools. He also has been a principal and dean and began his career at Noblesville Schools as a middle school social studies teacher and coach.
Mundy is a graduate of Ball State, Olivet Nazarene and Oakland City universities and is a long-time Noblesville resident.
