SCHOOL BOARD APPOINTS NEW HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL

Beech Grove—Dr. Laura Hammack, Beech Grove City Schools Superintendent, recommended the appointment of Mr. Andrew Karr as the new principal of Beech Grove High School to the Beech Grove City School Board at their monthly Board meeting this evening.  The Board unanimously approved Mr. Karr’s appointment.  Mr. Karr previously served as Assistant Principal at Beech Grove High School beginning in the 2018-19 school year.  Mr. Karr will replace Dr. Elizabeth Walters, who is leaving the district to become the Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Education in the Wayne Township MSD.

Dr. Walters stated, “I have had the unique opportunity to work alongside Beech Grove High School’s new Principal for the past few years.  Knowing Andy Karr, his skill set, and his unquestionable care for the students, staff and community of Beech Grove, I have absolutely no doubt that for Beech Grove High School, the best is yet to come.”

 Mr. Karr recommended that Ms. Lauren Marra transition to the Assistant Principal position that he is vacating and Mr. Ethan Harris to transition to the Dean position vacated by Ms. Marra.  These changes were also approved by the Beech Grove City School Board.

“I echo Dr. Walter’s sentiments about Andy.  I am confident in his ability to move the high school to the next exciting level and continue the fine tradition of Hornet Pride at Beech Grove High School,” stated Dr. Hammack.
