Steve Rose Sings The Praise Of Departing Shawnee Mission School Honcho Jim Hinson

To be fair, this is high praise for and from the Johnson County elite . . .

Steve Rose: Shawnee Mission Superintendent Jim Hinson was controversial but effective

Departing Shawnee Mission School District Superintendent Jim Hinson performed brilliantly during his four-year term. But as a leader in the community, he was not what I would call a fit with Johnson County. Hinson's style, as well as his controversial positions on some key issues, alienated significant segments of the community.

had been wondering what was going on.

sometimes kansas people insist everyone else be nice, too nice, and that can go against action-oriented managers.

He was having a very public affair with Deb Zila, on the school board. The gal who used to be president, and who hired him. Then he gave a contract to CBIZ to manage benefits for the SMSD, and CBIZ hired Zila's daughter, Mallory. Who previously had only worked at Nordstrom's in customer service.

There's also the rumor that Hinson and Zila were stopped for a DUI, but the next morning somehow the police report was expunged.

If anyone can document it, write Tony off the record.

Hinson bailed just ahead of an investigation that still needs to be made.

He should have been banging the slut daughter instead of the old hag.
