Camanche native tapped to head North Scott schools

CLINTON — A Camanche native will return to his roots this June, after being selected as the new superintendent for the North Scott Community School District.

Joe Stutting, a 1987 graduate of Camanche High School, has been away from his hometown for nearly 27 years and although he will be moving a little further south to Eldridge, he couldn’t be happier to be back in Eastern Iowa.

“We’ve always called Camanche and Eastern Iowa home,” Stutting said about his wife and family. “We’ve traveled there so often, that even my kids call it home and they’ve never even lived there.”

Until recently that is. Stutting’s son now calls himself a resident of Camanche along with his wife and two daughters, joining several other family members in the river city.

It was because of that heavy family presence, including his parents and his wife Jamie’s parents, in Camanche and surrounding areas in Eastern Iowa, that accepting the position at North Scott was a no-brainer.

Plus it didn’t hurt that Stutting felt he would be a good fit at the school district and the district a good fit for him.

“Not only is North Scott a great school district but obviously the draw to come home is huge,” Stutting said. “North Scott’s a place that I can finish off my career. As a superintendent you hope that you can be around for 20 some years but I also understand that things change. We’re just hoping we come home and it’s our last move.”

One issue that is hindering that move is Stutting’s daughter. Next year she will begin her senior year of high school but has yet to decide where she will attend that final year. Stutting has given her the option to stay in their current town of Sturgeon Bay, Wis., or join him in Eldridge and attend the North Scott School District to close out her high school education.
