Byron Center — Troy Reedy is the new principal at Byron Center High School.
Previous positions in the district: West Middle School assistant principal
On changing grade levels: “My first year in Byron Center was great. After getting to work with the staff, students, and community at West Middle School, I knew I wanted to stay in the district long term. It was a really tough decision to leave WMS because I loved the people there, but this opportunity (at BCHS) will allow me to grow in my leadership and stay in the district, so I couldn’t pass up.”
What he’s excited about: “My role will be very different as a principal versus an assistant principal. I will still be focused on relationships with all staff and students, but will be much more focused on the big picture, solving problems, and continuing our success as opposed to managing student behavior.
“Outside of building relationships, I’m most excited for the opportunity to lead a school that achieves at such a high level. I look forward to continuing to look for ways we can get better each year.”
