High school principal moving on
Lake Roosevelt High School Principal Brad Wilson is taking a position as principal of the middle school in the Chelan School District.
The school board accepted his resignation Monday night.
Wilson has been in the Grand Coulee Dam School District 11 years as teacher, coach, athletic director, interim principal and dean of students, as well as principal.
He had won a number of honors including Coach of the Year in the Caribou Trail League and took several teams to the state basketball tournament.
Wilson filled in as interim LRHS principal when then-principal Steve Breeze lost his fight with cancer. Wilson was later selected by the board to be Breeze’s successor.
Superintendent Dennis Carlson had high praise for Wilson.
“He has accepted every challenge we’ve given him and been a positive influence in the district,” Carlson noted.
Carlson said that the district will advertise for a new high school principal and also for the middle school principal position, which is currently held by Brandon Byers who took the interim job in mid-year when Lisa Lakin moved to the principalship at Center School.
Carlson stated that the board would interview candidates on May 22 and May 23, and the board would make the selections May 28.
Also Monday night, the board accepted the resignation of veteran teacher and coach Gordon Proctor, who is retiring.
The board also accepted the resignation of Holly Weston, the assessment coordinator, and approved Jaci Gross as girls’ assistant varsity basketball coach.
