USD-373 hires communications director

NEWTON–USD-373 has hired Newton alumna Carly (Willis) Stavola to serve as its communications director.

Stavola previously worked as a television reporter, working at KSN Channel 3 since 2017, and spent two years prior to that working for KOAM in Joplin, Mo.

Stavola will be starting her new position in mid-November with the district, according to the school district release.

“I look forward to several more weeks with my brand new baby before starting this new journey with the school district that raised me,” she said. “Thank you for the opportunity, and I look forward to working with you all. Go Railers!”

Stavola is a well-known face around Newton. She’s an alumna of Newton High School as well as Washburn. She’s the daughter of Mark and Cathy Willis and currently lives in Newton with husband Michael. 
She replaces former communications director Samantha Anderson, who departed the district to take a position as director of marketing at Heartspring in Wichita.
