With the start of the new school year, the Greenfield R-IV School district welcomed a new Superintendent to the Greenfield community. Dr. Kell joined the district as elementary principal in 2015 and moved into the superintendent's office on July 1. Prior to working in Greenfield as a principal, Dr Kell spent eight years teaching social studies in the Cassville District and two years working in the Everton School District.

In addition to working within education, Dr. Kell has been an active member of the Missouri National Guard since 2001.
Dr. Kell believes, "The future is bright for the Greenfield School District. I think we have a great, professional staff and great students within our two school building. While I am superintendent , my primary goal will be to ensure that all students receive the education that they deserve."
