The Wamego School Board met briefly Friday to approve the hire of new principals at Wamego Middle School and Wamego High School for the upcoming school year.
Interim Superintendent Greg Mann spoke about the hiring process at Friday’s meeting.
Brad Couture will lead the middle school after serving as an assistant principal and athletic director for several years at Republic County Schools in Belleville. Julie Schrum will lead the high school, following a two year stint as principal at Norton Community High School.
A formal meet and greet is planned closer to the start of the school year.
The school board also approved a personnel report that included the resignation of Tim Winter as a middle school math teacher. He had previously accepted the job after resigning as the district’s superintendent in May.
