Pat Westby, Superintendent

Welcome to Sauk Centre Schools! It is my pleasure and honor to serve the students, families and community members of Sauk Centre as your Superintendent of Schools and want to welcome you to our District. My goal is that your time spent with us is both challenging and rewarding.

I started my position as ISD #743 Superintendent on July 1, 2016. Before coming to Sauk Centre Schools, I had the opportunity to serve the West Central Area School District for eight years as their Superintendent as well as their Elementary Principal for three years. I also have administrative experiences with the Alexandria, MN; Moorhead, MN and the Red Wing, MN School Districts along with elementary teaching experiences with the Pipestone, MN and Moorhead, MN School Districts.

My undergraduate degree in Elementary Education is from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD. I earned a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from St. Thomas University in St. Paul, MN in 1996 and later earned both K-12 Principal and Superintendent Licensures through Minnesota State University Moorhead, Moorhead, MN. While I grew up in Pelican Rapids, MN, my wife Cathy and our children Isaiah and McKenna are proud to call Sauk Centre home!

Go Streeters!!
