The Sedalia School District will see a changing of the guard from one superintendent to another at the end of June. Dr. Harriet Wolfe will be leaving the district and Assistant Superintendent Brad Pollitt will be the new superintendent. The last school board meeting for Wolfe was June 17, and she was surprised with the honor of having the library at the new high school named after her. The Smith-Cotton library is now known as the Dr. Harriet Wolfe Media Center.
