FHS nearing decision on new activities director


Farmington High School will have a new activities director soon, but principal Ben Kusch is not sure the new AD will be in place by the beginning of the school year.

The activities director position became available in mid-July when Jon Summer took a similar position in the Chaska school district. Summer had been Farmington's activities director for eight years.
