WARSAW — Warsaw Community Schools has selected a candidate for Jefferson Elementary School principal.
According to a post on the WCS website, Josh Wall has been selected as the next principal of Jefferson in Winona Lake. That’s pending the Warsaw Community School Board’s approval at its next meeting on Wednesday, July 14.
He would replace Kyle Carter, who left as Jefferson principal to become the corporation’s chief technology and analytics officer.
According to the WCS post, “Wall earned a Bachelor of Science in education from the University of Saint Francis in 2011. He then joined the U.S. Army Reserve in 2011 and started his teaching career as a second grade teacher at Washington Elementary.”
“In 2016, Mr. Wall deployed to the Horn of Africa as a psychological operations sergeant,” the biography continues. “With the support of a scholarship from Warsaw Community Schools Board of School Trustees, Mr. Wall earned his master’s degree in educational administration from Indiana University and became an instructional coach in 2018.”
“We are so excited to welcome Mr. Wall to our elementary administrative team,” said WCS Superintendent Dr. David Hoffert in a statement in the post. “His background of STEM expertise, elementary curriculum and leadership experiences in the military provide a great background. His prior background at Jefferson Elementary Schools provides a seamless transition as their new principal.”
WCS Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education David Robertson added, in the post, “We are excited to watch Mr. Wall continue the legacy of servant leadership at Jefferson Elementary School as principal. Josh brings a wealth of knowledge in expertise specifically in STEM education. We are blessed to have him on the team at Jefferson!”
According to the post, Wall’s wife, Gabriella, is a former Jefferson Spartan. They have two daughters, Hannah, 2, and Abigail, 4 months.
