At a special meeting of the Board of Education held on May 29, 2019, the Board approved contracts for the next Athletic Director of Batavia High School and the next Assistant Principal at Batavia Middle School.
First, we are excited to announce that Matthew Blandin will be joining Batavia as Athletic Director beginning August 1, 2019. Matt currently serves as the Athletic Director of Grove City Christian School. Prior to coming to Grove City in 2015, Matt served as the Athletic Director at the Open Door Christian School in Elyria, Ohio from 2011-2015 and as the Athletic Director of Calvary Christian in Monterey, California from 2004-2009. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sports Management from Taylor University and a Master of Education Degree in Athletic Administration from Bowling Green.
Second, we welcome Adam Bird, who will be joining the administrative team at the Middle School as our new Assistant Principal. Adam is recently retired as the Superintendent of the New Richmond Exempted Village School District. His desire to work directly with students and teachers again perfectly fit the candidate profile the Middle School was looking for, as Adam brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will benefit our students, parents, and staff members.
There are so many exciting things to be looking forward to as we look ahead to the 2019-2020 school year, and both Matt and Adam are great additions to the Bulldog family!
