- The Merrill School Board will officially move forward with a new superintendent after unanimously selecting a replacement Wednesday night, according to a district press release.
The board approved the contract offer for Dr. John Sample.
Sample will replace Wally Leipart, who resigned in May after he was placed on leave for an investigation.
Assistant Superintendent Michele Jahnke, who was also placed on leave, resigned the same day.
The district says Gerald Beyer, who is the Prairie River Middle School (PRMS) Principal, was appointed as the Director of Curriculum & Instruction. Ryan Martinovici, who is the current PRMS Associate Principal, was appointed as the new PRMS principal.
