'Dawson Avenue boy' returns as MCS director of personnel

Mark Wilcheck talks with board of education member Sheryl Weber after Thursday evening’s meeting.

      A former superintendent of two Ohio public school districts who grew up in Mansfield is the new director of personnel for Mansfield City Schools.

      Mark Wilcheck, 56, received a two-year contract, effective Aug. 1, on a 5-0 vote of the board of education Thursday.

      “I’m a Dawson Avenue boy. I’d ride my bike to North Lake Swim Club,” Wilcheck said, recalling his boyhood days in Mansfield.

      He graduated from Ontario High School in 1980 after his parents built a house in that district.

      Wilcheck, who succeeds Mark Manley as personnel director, helped with administrative duties at Mansfield Senior High last spring. He was at work in his office at the Raemelton administration building on Thursday.

      “I got my feet wet and hit the ground running,” he told the board after the vote to hire him. “I believe this position will be very good for me. I want to quickly establish relationships with teachers and everyone else in the district.”

      Wilcheck’s annual salary will be $97,240.

      From 2013 to 2017 Wilcheck served in administrative roles, including vice president of business relations and personnel management, at Metropolitan Educational Technology Association (formerly TRECA) in Marion.

      Wilcheck was superintendent of Minford Local Schools in Scioto County from 2009 to 2013 and superintendent of Cardington-Lincoln Local Schools in Morrow County from 2003 to 2008.

      His career also included four years as principal of Mapleton High School in Ashland County from 1998 to 2002.

      Wilcheck received his undergraduate degree in physical education, health education and general science from The Ohio State University. He then earned a master’s in physical education and athletic administration and a master in educational administration from Ohio University.

      'He earned superintendent certification from Bowling Green State University.
