HERMISTON, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon superintendent is taking a recess from his educational duties and will be leaving for active duty later this month.

Hermiston School District Superintendent Fred Maiocco (my-OH’-co) announced Monday that he will be taking a leave of absence to serve a tour of duty.

The East Oregonian reports (http://bit.ly/2tN5rH7 ) Maiocco also serves as a brigadier general for the U.S. Army Reserve and will leave for 15-18 months deployment in Europe on July 24.

During his deployment, Maiocco will serve as a commander and a deputy commanding general.

The school district’s board is searching for an interim superintendent to take Maiocco’s place. He hopes to return to Hermiston after his service.
