The Shawnee Heights Board of Education looked north to find its new high school principal.
The Board selected Alan Beam for the position at its meeting Monday night.
Beam brings 17 years experience from Holton High School. Before that, he worked ten years at Washington High.
Beam has also taught Highland Community College courses for the past 15 years.
He will replace Warren Watson as the high school principal. Watson is retiring after more than two decades at Shawnee Heights.
