Three Mid-Prairie principals retiring
WELLMAN — The Mid-Prairie School District will replace three principals from high school to elementary school this spring. Monday, High School Principal Gerry Beeler, Mid-School Principal Nancy Hurd, and Wellman and Washington Township Elementary schools Principal Evan Parrott, announced they would take early retirement, effective June 30.
Beeler has been at Mid-Prairie 18 years, Hurd, 13 and Parrott, 12.
Superintendent Mark Schneider said he hopes to have the high school and middle school positions filled in March and the elementary one by April 1. None of the retirements came as surprise, he said. In fact, Hurd had told the board last year that 2012-13 would be her final year at M-P.
