Dubuque Native Chosen to Lead Quad City School District

A Quad Cities school district has gone ahead and hired a Dubuque native to be their new superintendent. Earlier this week, we told you that Dr. Rachel Savage was one of three finalists to take the top job at the Moline-Coal Valley school district. The school board there wasn’t expected to announce their choice until next month. But board members defied those expectations and unanimously approved a three-year contract for Savage at a meeting this week. Savage is currently the principal at a middle school in Waterloo, a job she’s held since 2015. Before that, she was the superintendent at the school district in Williams, Arizona. Savage graduated from Senior High School in 1991, then earned a degree in Spanish from Loras College. She taught world languages at Western Dubuque and Hempstead High Schools until 2009, when she moved to Arizona.
