The Chester District 139 Board of Education now officially has its next superintendent.

The board members unanimously voted Thursday night to approve a three-year contract with Nashville High School Principal Brian Pasero as the new district superintendent.

Pasero, 41, steps into a position that became vacant when former superintendent Rick Goodman stepped down at the end of May.

Pasero also joins Chester High School Principal Missy Meyer, whose contract was also formally approved by the board on Thursday, as new administrative hires in the district.
