Dr. Jeff Seeton, who has served as Brewer High School’s interim principal since November, was announced as the principal of Brewer High School during the May 15 Board of Trustees meeting.
“Dr. Seeton has done a phenomenal job during this transition, and we are excited about the opportunities our students will experience as a result of his future leadership,” said Superintendent Frank Molinar.
Seeton served as the district’s Career and Technical Education Director for the past four years. During his tenure, the CTE program has tripled in course offerings as well as the number of students participating in CTE programs.
Under his leadership, the district also implemented an engineering career pathway and an agricultural science pathway.
Seeton was also instrumental in the construction of a new WSISD Career and Technical Education Facility. The facility creates opportunities for careers in welding, wood trades, ag mechanics, architecture, aerospace and more.
Under his direction, the district also constructed a 16,000 square foot ag barn that will house cattle, sheep, goats and hogs.
“We will continue to expand on the work our students have done, continuing the growth and excellence in our advanced academic, career and technical education, fine arts, and athletic programs,” said Seeton.
“When young adults graduate from Brewer High School, there will be no doubt that they are college and career ready," he said. "They will have the knowledge and skillset to be productive members of society, regardless of their post-secondary aspirations."
Seeton also stressed the importance of providing a safe environment for students and staff as well as providing every opportunity to engage ALL students and ensure their future success.
Also, as part of WSISD’s reorganization of the Curriculum and Instruction Department, Lea Duncan, currently the Dean of College and Career Readiness at Brewer, will become WSISD’s Secondary Education Director.
Duncan served as assistant principal at BHS for a year and a half and Dean of College and Career Readiness for the past year. She was assistant principal at Brewer four previous years.
“Her current position supports our advanced academics program in grades 5 through 12,” said Molinar. “Her role will now be expanded to support and oversee all secondary instruction.”
“We’re excited about bringing her expertise and the pride and the expectation of continuing the growth in our students’ pursuit of post secondary opportunities,” Molinar said.
