LP High School has a new Athletic Director.
Dan Le comes from Ottawa High School, where he’s been an instructional coach responsible for professional development, evaluating teachers, and coaching tennis and basketball. He’s also been a math teacher and coordinator of the student-spirit section. In addition to leading athletics, Le will evaluate faculty members at LP.
Le holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree from the University of Illinois, and another master’s degree from Aurora University. His appointment is effective July 1. He fills a vacancy left by the resignation of Athletic Director Kevin Parker.
In a quick meeting just before Thursday’s commencement exercises, the Board of Education unanimously approved Le’s hiring, as well as the hiring of new science teacher Brian Sievers, for the upcoming school year.
After the meeting, LP conducted its 121st graduation ceremony, this one for a class of 278.
