It is with deep sadness that the Howell Valley Community mourns the passing of Mr. Casus Baird.  He passed away the morning of December 4, 2021.  Mr. Baird selflessly served the Howell Valley R-I School District as its’ lead administrator for over 30 years.  Mr. Baird was a true educational leader, mentor, role-model and father figure.  He was a leader held in the highest regard by everyone that was blessed to know him.
