Mr. Brogan, Assistant Principal, District Athletic Administrator
Hello Western Reserve Families, I would like to welcome everyone back for the 2022 - 2023 school year! I hope that everyone had a wonderful summer break and that everyone is ready for a great school year ahead! I am excited and looking forward to enter my first year as Principal of the Middle and High School here at Western Reserve. I am truly honored to be given this opportunity to lead the dedicated staff and students of this community. As an alumni of Western Reserve, I am excited to continue the mission, vision and traditions of this great district. As the new principal it is my goal to establish a clear line of communication internally and externally as communication is key to the success of our school. I also look forward to building positive relationships with our staff, students, and community with a common goal of success for the future. Parental involvement is vital to your students' success, and we ask that you continue to play an active role in your child’s education. As we start this school year, our teachers are eager to get back to our normal practices within the school. With that being said the staff recognizes the role in which they play in helping our students reach their fullest potential, and this is a responsibility they do not take lightly! As a whole we are eagerly looking forward to a successful 2022 - 2023 school year! GO BLUE DEVILS!!
