ALEXANDRIA, Ky. -- The Campbell County Board of Education unanimously named David A. Rust as the next superintendent Monday night. He starts work July 1.

The Campbell County School District has been without a superintendent since Nov. 1, when former superintendent Glen Miller retired after being charged with domestic violence against his wife. Associate Superintendent Shelli Wilson took on his duties during the search for a new superintendent.

Rust has been director of academics for the Bellevue Independent School System for the last two years. He is a graduate of Scott High School in Kenton County and earned a bachelor's degree in social studies education and a master's degree in instructional leadership from Northern Kentucky University. Rust graduated with his doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Kentucky.

According to a news release, Rust has 21 years of experience in education. He has served as a social studies teacher and assistant principal at Scott High School. From 2003 to 2007, he served as principal at Ludlow Middle School and later served as principal at R.A. Jones Middle School in Boone County.

The Kentucky Music Educators Association named Rust as state administrator of the year in 2014.

Rust currently resides in Independence with his wife, Stacy, and his four children: Kyler (12), Ashlyn (10), Danton (7) and Garrett (5).
