Mike Hagadone moves to White River district office

Mike Hagadone’s six-year run as principal at White River  High School is coming to an end – but the longtime educator will not be leaving the school district.

At the conclusion of this school year, Hagadone heads to the district office to serve as director of secondary education under Superintendent Janell Keating, as she takes the reigns from retiring Superintendent Tom Lockyer.

Keating’s current position as deputy superintendent is going away.

Stepping up to take over as White River High principal is current Assistant Principal Lainey Matthews.

Keating said a new assistant principal has been chosen, but will not be announced until the school board makes the selection official tonight, Wednesday.

Hagadone came to White River from the Puyallup School District. Before that, he had been a teacher and coach at Enumclaw High, Sumner High and in his home town of Sandpoint, Idaho.
