* New Whitehall City Schools Superintendent Named *

After an extensive search, community involvement, and rigorous interview process, Whitehall City Schools has named Sharee Wells as the district’s next superintendent.  Wells was selected among 30 candidates who applied for the position.

Wells comes to Whitehall from Hilliard City Schools where she served as their Assistant Superintendent. Prior to that, she served in roles as the Director of Professional Learning at the Educational Service Center of Central Ohio and the Executive Director of High Schools for Columbus City Schools. She received her Bachelor of Science in Spanish Education K-12 from Ohio University and her Master of Arts in Educational Policy and Leadership from The Ohio State University. She is currently on track to complete her Ed.D. from Ashland University in Leadership Studies in June of 2022.

During her career at Columbus City Schools, Ms. Wells improved the district’s performance on every Ohio State Test administered in grades 7, 8, and high school end-of-course exams. With over 20 years of comprehensive and diverse service-oriented leadership experience, Wells offers an established track record of raising academic performance, increasing adult commitment and productivity, and engaging parents and the community in meaningful ways.

“Sharee is known in educational circles as someone with high standards for creating solutions to problems, monitoring progress, and leading teams through transformation processes,” said WCS Board President, Mike Adkins. “After the tragic loss of superintendent Hamler a few months ago, we knew this district was going to go through a monumental transition. We feel Sharee is the perfect person to lead our district into this next chapter.”

WCS Deputy Superintendent, Mark Trace, WYHS 1983) was interviewed by NBC 4's Monica Day (WYHS 2000) on August 20, 2021 about Channel 4's donation of 1,100 backpacks for Whitehall students.
