Lori Pavell has been named Lowell High School Principal effective July 1.
In a special session Thursday morning, the Tri-Creek School Board approved the recommendation of Superintendent Debra Howe and the search committee to hire the current principal of Hebron Middle School.
"It was a unanimous decision," Howe said of Pavell's selection. She said Pavell's broad background equips her well to lead the high school into its next phase.
Athletic Director Patti McCormick who sat on the committee said, "I wanted to be sure this person fit with what we have in place ... someone the teachers could relate to, yet respect."
