The Logan City School District announced the latest changes in a series of administrative changes in the district this week.
Current Mount Logan Middle School sixth grade teacher Jill Beer was named as the new MLMS assistant principal, replacing Paul Wagner. Wagner was named as the principal in May.
“We’re just thrilled to have her join the administrative team,” LCSD Superintendent Frank Schofield said. “She’s a veteran teacher at the school. She’s a veteran educator. She’s well aware of the positive things that are going on at Mount Logan Middle School.”
Beer received a bachelor’s degree from Utah State University and a master’s degree with an administrative endorsement from Western Governors University. Before the four years at MLMS as a sixth grade math and science teacher, she worked for 15 years in the Davis School District.
Beer said she was excited and looking forward to being a part of the MLMS administrative team and working with faculty and staff to help provide what is best for students to succeed academically.
The district and the Logan High administration announced the addition of Jesse Parker as the new athletic director.
“We’re excited to have him join our ranks and be a part of our program and the knowledge that he’ll bring for our students,” Schofield said.
Parker earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education and a master’s degree of education in physical and sport education from Utah State University. Parker has worked 11 years in Division I Athletics, working as director of basketball operations for the Grand Canyon University men’s basketball team and working with the USU basketball team.
“I am very excited to have Jesse Parker as our new athletic director,” LHS Principal Ken Auld states. “He comes to Logan High School with a lot of experience working at the college level, and I feel fortunate to have him as part of our Logan High administration team.”
Schofield said Parker brings a unique perspective to the LHS Athletics Department that could help students who would be interested in college athletics.
“You always have some students who start to wonder, you know, could college athletics be an option for them,” Schofield said. “He brings perspective in terms of what’s involved in that and what would be required for students to be successful, which is a unique perspective for a high school athletic director.”
