MANHATTAN — A familiar face will lead Lee Elementary School as its next principal.
Manhattan-Ogden USD 383 announced Tuesday that current Lee assistant principal Erica Bammes is taking the job, replacing Mindy Sanders, who is leaving the district for a principal job in the Abilene School District. Bammes has been at Lee Elementary since 2017. She’s a former elementary teacher in USD 383 as well as Plainville and Paradise, Kansas school districts.
In a release from the school district, Bammes said she is honored to become the next principal at Lee Elementary, noting her time spent the last two years building relationships with students, staff, families and stakeholders.
Superintendent Dr. Marvin Wade says the school is in great hands due to Bammes’ accomplishments as an award-winning former teacher and successful administrator.
Bammes begins her new position July 22.
