UPDATE @ 10:26 p.m.: The school board vote to name Dr. Reva Cosby superintendent of Trotwood-Madison City Schools was unanimous, board President Denise Moore said.
“Dr. Cosby’s vast experience and success as a superintendent, principal and teacher made her the perfect fit for our district,” Moore told the Dayton Daily News.
Cosby’s three-year contract begins June 15, Moore said.
Dr. Reva Cosby on Wednesday night was named the new superintendent of Trotwood-Madison City Schools.
Cosby is the current superintendent of Mount Healthy City Schools, near Cincinnati, where she has been since 2015.
She earned her Master’s from Wright State University and her doctorate from the University of Dayton.
Cosby also has worked in urban and suburban school districts in the Dayton area during her career.
She taught at Wilmington College and was principal at Wayne High School before taking the Mount Healthy job.
The educator’s career also includes stints as a Trotwood High School unit principal from 2004-07 and a turn as a teacher and grant writer for Dayton Public Schools.
