The Imperial Valley Press recently reported on the Central Union High School District, which serves families in the El Centro, California area, identifying David Farkas as the finalist in the district's hiring process for a new superintendent. Farkas is a member of UMass Global’s part-time faculty and the school district’s governing board approved his hiring during its June 14 meeting.
