Oskaloosa School Board Hires New Activities Director
Oskaloosa, Iowa – This past week, the Oskaloosa School Board approved the hiring of Ryan Parker as the new Activities Director for the Oskaloosa High School.
Parker will now take over the duties that Zach Hood had been hired for in May of 2014. Hood was going to fill the vacated position of Kevin Peterson, who retired at the end of the school year, but Hood will not be able to fill the position due to personal reasons.
The Board then approved the hiring of Parker, who had originally applied for the AD position, but was selected to be the OHS Boys Basketball Coach.
Parker is a 2004 graduate from William Penn University and played basketball under current Head Coach John Henry. He performed his student teaching at Oskaloosa Middle School under Mike Sash.
Parker comes to Oskaloosa once again via Elsberry High School in Missouri, where he was the high school boys basketball coach and athletic director. “I’m excited to take over this,” said Parker.
