The move reunites Hueller with former JHS Principal Brandon Eggleston, who will take over as R-7 superintendent July 1.
In an article in the June 13 Newton County News, Eggleston praised Hueller:
Dan is a special guy. He has the ability to create those relationships with kids. He has a deep understanding of what it takes for kids to graduate. Not only the kids that need that push, but also the kids that need to be challenged to excel.Hueller has been an assistant principal at Joplin for the past 12 years.. Previously, he served as Sarcoxie High School principal.
Hueller will replace Richie Fretwell, who resigned to follow former Seneca R-7 Superintendent Jim Cummins to Neosho. Cummins is replacing Dan Decker, who remains on administrative leave through the end of this month.
