Clearwater Secondary School will have a new vice-principal next fall.
Linda Zieffle will be taking the place of Peter Persad, who is leaving to take up the vice-principalship at Sahali in Kamloops.
“I’ve been very impressed with what is offered the students at Clearwater,” she said, “such as the videoconferencing, the trades program, the video production program and the award-winning music program.”
Zieffle comes to CSS from the Mission School District, where she was a vice-principal for four years. She has taught for 23 years.
Her husband is a firefighter in Mission. They have three children: one in university, one in Grade 12 and one in Grade 9.
Principal Alan Stel is leaving CSS as well this year and will take over as principal at Penticton Secondary. Darren Coates, who is moving here from Merritt, will take his place.
