Shan Jorgensen-Adam was named the principal of the new Revelstoke Elementary School, the school district announced Tuesday.
Jorgensen-Adam spent nearly eight years working as a principal at Mount Begbie Elementary and Columbia Park Elementary. She left the school district at the end of 2010 to take a position as Director of Instructional Services in Bonnyville, Alta., where her husband was working.
“Based on Shan’s previous eight years of service in the district… and her extensive knowledge and skills in elementary education, we are confident that Shan will excel in this assignment,” said Revelstoke school district superintendent Anne Cooper in a statement.
The new elementary school is scheduled to open at the start of the 2012-13 school year.
