Northwest Allen County Schools board president names top superintendent pick


The Northwest Allen County Schools board president announced his top choice for superintendent today: Wayne Barker.

Barker is currently the superintendent at School City of Mishawaka. Barker previously worked for NACS as a business teacher at Carroll High School.

Board president Ron Felger says Barker is a “perfect fit for NACS” and plans to introduce a motion to offer Barker a superintendent contract as soon as possible.

Per Indiana law, the coming timeline for the superintendent search will include publication of the proposed contract and two public meetings for public input and board voting.

If approved, Barker would begin on July 1.
