He looks forward to learning more about the district and the people who make the activities work.
“It is an exciting challenge that I look forward to and I am looking forward to meeting with the coaches, sponsors, ticket takers, scoreboard operators, and all the other people involved who make activities programs occur, and who make possible the opportunities for Marshalltown students to be a part of,” Ackerman said.
