Lance Foulk will be the new North Callaway High School principal starting this fall.
Foulk was the assistant principal at the high school for the 2020-21 school year, and before that was the principal in the Stoutland R-2 School District.
He is originally from the Lake of The Ozark region. Foulk went to school at Camdenton High School where he then taught for 20 years. He taught physical education, health and history, as well as coached football and track.
His wife, Jamie, had the opportunity to work in Jefferson City, so the two decided to start looking for a house and job for Foulk in the area.
“Last year, I applied for the assistant principal job and got it, and that’s how I ended up here,” Foulk said, “and I don’t really want to leave. I really enjoy it. The families I’ve worked with, the faculty I’ve worked with, the administration I work with is great. They all are so warm and welcoming; it’s just a great place to work.”
His first goal as principal is to try and get things back to normal as much as possible.
“Everything still seems to be up in the air,” Foulk said. “And I want it to be school again. I think it will give more security to our students, kids, our families, our employees, everything.”
With Foulk moving to the principal position, North Callaway High School has hired a new assistant principal as well. Scott Frederickson is moving from Salem and will be taking over the position.
The district is working to finish road work over by the central office, where flooding had washed out the bridge into the parking lot. It is projected to be done next week. They also just finished senior portraits, registration and immunization, if need, for the new school year at the City Maintenance Facility Building due to the road work.
“I’m excited and humbled that I can be the principal,” said Foulk. “But I have big shoes to fill, Mr. Jobe had been here for a long time and the staff loved him, so I feel like I have some big shoes to fill.”
