DUMAS -- Dumas superintendent Mark Stroebel died last week. His funeral was this past Saturday.
He started teaching in 1981. He became the Dumas Junior High principal in 1992. He eventually became superintendent in 2011.
Larry Appel has been named interim superintendent.
We aired a story Tuesday on the KAMR NBC 4 News at Ten about refugee students in Dumas.
Mr. Stroebel interviewed with us for that story a few weeks ago. We aired that story not knowing of his recent passing.
We do apologize for any discomfort that airing caused.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this difficult time
