Brandon Simmelink has been appointed as the new principal at the McPherson Middle School, effective July 12. The McPherson USD 418 school board last night appointed Simmelink to fill the vacancy left by the former MMS principal Kelley Brake.
Simmelink brings several years experience teaching and serving in leadership positions in Wichita and Hesston schools and currently serves as Hesston's middle school principal at USD 460.
“I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to return to McPherson and rejoin the Bullpup family,” Simmelink said in a press release. “McPherson Middle School is a school with rich traditions and great potential. I look forward to being a part of its future successes.”
Simmelink is a graduate of Bethany College and obtained his Masters in School Leadership from Baker University.
