The Athena-Weston School District has hired a new principal for Weston-McEwen High School for the 2018-19 school year. Rob Shell, current principal and athletic director at Elgin High School, will be the new principal.
The principal position was filled this school year by interim Jim Reger.
The district’s hiring process included a student-led interview panel and a staff interview panel. Superintendent Laure Quaresma said the district looks forward to having Shell as part of its administrative team. “We know Rob’s background and experience in the high school setting will be great assets for our district, and we look forward to welcoming him into our community,” Quaresma said.
Shell was previously a history teacher and served in the U.S. Navy. He will start his job as Weston-McEwen’s principal on July 1, 2018.
