TOMAHAWK – The School District of Tomahawk announced on Thursday, May 12 that High School Associate Principal Stacy Bolder had been offered and had accepted the position of Middle School Principal.
Bolder will assume duties in her new role on July 1.
Bolder has previous experience at Tomahawk Middle School (TMS). She taught physical education and health in the middle school for 15 years and served as the TMS Athletic Director for 12 of those years. She moved into her current position as High School Associate Principal in 2017.
Interim District Administrator Joseph Innis said the district is “extremely pleased” that Bolder accepted the position, noting the various capacities Bolder has worked in during her years in Tomahawk.
“(Bolder) has done excellent work every step along the way,” Innis stated. “Her experience and the commitment she has made to students and the district for many years make her an excellent choice for this position.”
“With her years of expertise and knowledge of our school district, we are very fortunate that Stacy has accepted the role as our next Tomahawk Middle School Principal,” said Board of Education Vice-President Kay Kissinger Wolf. “I am looking forward to working with her as she moves into her new position this July.”
Bolder said she is “very honored to have the opportunity to serve as the next principal of Tomahawk Middle School.”
“The middle school is a very special place for me because I spent a large amount of my teaching career in this building, and I am very excited to once again be a part of such a caring and hardworking staff,” she stated. “The 6th – 8th-grade years are such an important piece of helping our students feel a sense of connectedness, belonging and the exploration of academic and career opportunities. I look forward to working together with staff to move the middle school forward and building strong relationships with students, families and the community.”
The announcement of Bolder’s move to TMS comes about four months after the district’s Board of Education announced that it had offered its District Administrator position to current TMS Principal Wendell Quesinberry. The board approved Quesinberry’s contract in February, and he will begin in the Administrator position on July 1.
