Uwe Gordon has been a resident of the Stillwater community since arriving in the fall of 1979 to attend OSU, where he earned both bachelors and masters degrees in education. In August of 1984 he began his teaching career at Stillwater Junior High School where he taught civics for ten years and served as an assistant principal for five and a half years. In 2002 he became principal of Hennessey High School, where after just one year in the role he was asked to step into the district’s superintendent role. He served Hennesey in that capacity for three years. During his time working for other school districts, Uwe never moved out of Stillwater, and in the spring of 2006, he returned to working in Stillwater as Principal of Stillwater High School, a role he proudly served for 16 years, making him the longest serving principal at SHS. On July 1, 2022, Uwe began his new role as Superintendent of Stillwater Public Schools.
