ELMORE — Woodmore Local Schools will have a fresh slate of administrators when school opens next fall.
The school board this week accepted the resignation of Superintendent John Fernbaugh and then hired Woodmore Elementary Principal Linda Bringman to take his place effective Aug. 1. Joseph Wank, a former Woodmore Elementary principal who currently works as principal of Graytown and Rocky Ridge elementaries in the Benton-Carroll-Salem school district, was hired to take Ms. Bringman's position at Woodmore Elementary.
The school board also hired James Kieper, an assistant principal at Whitmer High School, as the new Woodmore High School principal. Mr. Kieper, who will be paid $89,500, replaces Ralph Myers, who is retiring.
Salaries have not been finalized for the other administrators, who all were given three-year contracts.
