Liberty named principal


Lake Roosevelt High School will get its first woman principal, ever, for the 2015-16 school year.

Superintendent Dennis Carlson named Ronanda Liberty as principal of Lake Roosevelt Junior/Senior High School at a school board meeting Monday night.

She replaces Brandon Byers, who took a position as assistant principal at Frontier Middle School in Moses Lake, a school of about 800 students.

Byers came to the district here in 2008 as an English teacher and served as principal of the Grand Coulee Dam Middle School for a year before moving to the high school principal position.

Liberty was middle school principal for the 2013-14 school year and became assistant principal at the Lake Roosevelt Senior/Junior High School when the new school opened last September.

Liberty taught at the North Franklin School before coming to the Grand Coulee area.

She has both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Washington State University.

In other personnel action Monday night there were five resignations and six hires.

Resigning were Cathy Krohn, as Pathways and senior boards coordinator; Christi Berry, a paraprofessional in the elementary school; Kasey Garvin, as high school assistant volleyball coach; Taima Carden, LAP paraprofessional in the elementary school; and James Caddy, LRJH science teacher.

Hires include Natalie Kontos, elementary PE specialist; Wallace Pleasants, high school girl’s varsity basketball coach; Kasey Garvin, LRHS head volleyball coach; Paul Braun, LRJH 7th grade football coach; Kathryn Logue, LRE special education teacher; and Karen Pace, K-12 music teacher.
