Search for new Bourbon Schools superintendent is over

Dr. Kyle Gibbs has been hired by the Bourbon School Board as the new superintendent of the Crawford County R-I School District. He will assume duties as superintendent of schools beginning July 1, 2019, following the retirement of Patricia Thompson, which was announced late last year.

Dr. Gibbs grew up in South Central Missouri, on a farm in Crawford County. He graduated from Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education in 1999. In 2005, he graduated with a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar. Gibbs completed his Doctoral Degree in Educational Leadership in June of 2018. 

He and his wife Amy, along with their four children, will be relocating to the Bourbon area. Their children range in ages from 8 to 17. 

Dr. Gibbs loves the outdoors, home improvement, and landscaping projects. He is an avid runner and has completed numerous marathons and ultramarathons across the country.
