Superintendent:  Carl Seiter

Carl Seiter, a lifelong resident of Farwell, graduated from Farwell Area Schools in 1983.  After attending college at Ferris State University and obtaining degrees in Accounting and Finance in 1988, he began his career as the Accounting Manager of North Central Area Credit Union in Roscommon.  Returning to his hometown of Farwell in 1992, Seiter began his career with the school district as Business Manager.  He remained in that position for the past 19 years until taking over as Superintendent in July of 2011.  Carl resides in Lake with his wife, Brenda, also a graduate of Farwell, and two daughters, Kelsey and Morgan.  Both children currently attend Farwell High School.


"Farwell Area Schools provides our students with many opportunities.  Opportunities that I wish were available as I moved through the Farwell school system many years ago.  As we look to ensure that our students are successful citizens of the future, I believe our programs go a long way towards providing the support required to accomplish this task.  As a fellow parent with two daughters in the system, I can promise you that we will work as hard as it takes to make your child successful.  Like many of our staff members, growing up in this community gives us that additional drive and commitment to making this community a great place to raise a family."
