Taylorville Junior High School will have a new principal and assistant principal next year. TJHS principal Kirk Kettelkamp and assistant principal Beth Vincent turned in their letters announcing their retirement at Monday’s Taylorville school board meeting. Kettelkamp has been with the district for 33 years, while Vincent has been with the district for 24 years.
Taylorville School District Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau says it is hard to replace that much education experience at one time.
Fuerstenau says the two willing be leaving the junior high in great shape.
Fuerstenau says because the letters were turned in so early in the year, the district has plenty of time to search internally and externally for the best candidates, and it will also help the transition between administrations.
