Tyson Walker, who has served as principal in the Butterfield-Odin School District the past five years, was named Windom Area Elementary School’s new assistant principal.
The announcement came during Monday’s regular board meeting in the Windom City Hall council chambers.
Walker was one of five finalists for the job, all of whom were interviewed by school board members, incoming superintendent Jamie Frank and newly named Elementary Principal Dane Nielsen.
Ultimately, the decision to hire Walker was made by Frank and Nielsen.
Walker will begin his duties July 1.
Also at Monday’s meeting, the board accepted the resignation of Windom Area Middle High School Assistant Principal Jessica Carbo. That vacancy is currently posted.
