Mrs. Archer is the new junior high school principal, accepting the role halfway through the 2016-2017 school year and accepting a full appointment to the position beginning the 2017-2018 school year.
She is well received by a staff that has become familiar with her while she served as the vice principal. It was a natural fit for Mrs. Archer to become the new leader of the junior high. The district is fortunate to have such a dedicated and well-liked person serving in this capacity.
Don Bell accepted the role as vice principal beginning the 2017-2018 school year. He is only the second vice principal in the history of Keene Junior High succeeding Mrs. Archer, who moved into the principal role the same year. Mr. Bell leaves behind two years in the junior high classroom and coaching staff.
Keene ISD, and especially Keene Junior High, are fortunate to have Mr. Bell as part of the leadership team. He is well liked and respected by the staff, as well as the student body.
