The Fort Dodge Community School District has announced its replacement for former Director of Communications Jen Lane.
The district has named Lydia Schuur its Communications and Community Relations Specialist.
According to a post on the district’s Facebook page, Schuur comes to the district from the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance, where she has served as its Communications Specialist for the last four and a half years.
“We are thrilled to announce Lydia as the newest addition to our Dodger family,” FDCSD Superintendent Josh Porter said. “Lydia brings a wealth of experience and expertise in the field of communications to the table. We are confident she will play a key role in elevating our organization’s outreach efforts in the community while continuing to build relationships with Dodger kids, families, and teachers. She will strengthen our ties with the community we proudly serve, and tell our district’s story.
In addition to her time with the GFDGA, Schuur also currently holds an at-large position on the Fort Dodge City Council. She has served in that role since November of 2017.
