Some big changes ahead for Mark Isfeld Secondary
I am pleased to announce that the new Principal for Mark Isfeld is Sean Lamoureux. Mr. Lamoureux is an experienced administrator currently with Sa Hali Secondary in Kamloops. He is excited to be moving to the valley to take on this challenge, and to connect with family here. We are pleased to have a highly regarded professional choose Isfeld. Mr. Lamoureux will be supported by returning Vice Principals Jonathan Bos and Karma Taiji.
Our long-serving Senior Administrative Assistant, Brenda Hunt, has retired this June and will be dearly missed. She brought her professional acumen, her infectious positivity and her indominable commitment to a series of graduating classes for over a decade, leaving a permanent mark on the culture of Isfeld. Lisa Nicholls moves over to a new desk in the front office to fulfill her former duties.
Jason den Otter, our skilled accounts clerk, has been hired by the Regional District. Jason was popular with students and staff alike for his unflappable calm, his rapier wit and his skill as a coach of our senior boys soccer team. Isfeld is fortunate to have Isabel Elgueta, formerly of Highland, join us to replace him.
If that sounds like a lot of change, there is good news. The majority of our teaching and non-teaching staff will be returning next year, and I know that they will support our new staff and principal during this period of transition.
