EL PASO — A former El Paso High School history teacher is returning to head the school now known as El Paso-Gridley High School.
The El Paso-Gridley Board of Education this week approved Brian Quam as the high school's new principal.
Quam's 14 years of educational experience and five years of administrative experience started in fall 2000 with a one-year stint at Joy-Westmer High School in Mercer County. In 2001 started teaching at the high school in El Paso and helped with the consolidation of El Paso and Gridley school systems.
In 2009 he was hired to be the assistant principal/dean of students at Prairie Central High School in Fairbury and then in 2012 became principal at Westview Elementary school in Fairbury.
"We will continue to work every day to provide the best learning opportunities for students to make them be successful in the classroom as well as once they leave the hallways of EPGHS," Quam said in a news release the school district issued Tuesday. "I am excited once again to be able to work with the great number of people who call EPG home."
Quam received his bachelor's and master's degrees from Illinois State University. He and his wife, Christy, have been married for nine years and have two children, Caroline and Andrew.
