Leader hired for Wolf Creek schools

WCPS finds new superintendent from within their own ranks

There will no longer be the word ‘acting’ in front of his title as Jayson Lovell has been hired as the new superintendent for Wolf Creek Public Schools (WCPS) a formal announcement said Monday, July 4.

Lovell had taken over the leadership of the schools division which encompasses schools in Ponoka, Rimbey, Alix, Clive, Eckville, Bentley and Lacombe as acting superintendent following Larry Jacob’s leave of absence in January and subsequent retirement at the end of February.

The WCPS board made the decision to hire Lovell as the replacement during a meeting on June 18, but the provincial ministry of Education had to first approve his appointment before the recruitment could be announced publicly.

More details will follow in next week’s edition.
