Bowling Green High School welcomes a Salisbury transplant to fill the role as principal for the 2013-2014 school year. J.W. Brandt, his wife Alison, who is also in education, and children Beau, a freshman, and Reagan, a sixth grader, will be moving to Bowling Green as he prepares to take on his new responsibilities at BGHS.
Brandt has been principal at Salisbury high school for the past five years. He has worked in Marceline as the football and basketball coach, and in Cuba as the middle school principal. After developing his love for coaching and teaching science, the Sullivan native realized that his true passion is in administration.
