Dr. Boyd Brown has been named the new Superintendent of Schools for Laramie County School District 1.

Brown has been with the Campbell County School District in Gillette for the past 30 years, and has served as Superintendent since July 2014.

"I am honored to have the privilege and opportunity to work with the board, staff, students, parents and community members of Laramie County School District 1," said Brown.

"I was very impressed, visiting 10 schools during my interview, with the quality of students and staff members I had the opportunity to meet and observe," he added. "I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting to work."

Brown will assume his duties with LCSD1 on July 1. He replaces John Lyttle, who announced in March that he'd be retiring June 30.

The Board of Trustees will vote on Brown’s contract at their meeting on Monday, May 7.
