The Bonham School Board hired three new administrators at their Nov. 11 meeting: an interim principal of Bonham High School, a director of finance and a director of special education.


The Board hired David Ketcher as the interim principal at Bonham High School following the retirement of current Principal Steve Hill, said Bonham ISD Spokeswoman Leslie Crustinger. Hill has been the BHS principal for the past 6 and a half years.


"Mr. Hill will truly be missed as he has done a marvelous job at BHS," said Bonham ISD Superintendent Marvin Beaty.


Ketcher retired in 2010 after 29 years in education. He worked six years as the principal and two years as assistant principal at Lake Dallas High School. Prior to working at Lake Dallas, Ketcher was the assistant principal, dean of students and coach at Little Elm High School for a total of 4 years. His goal for Bonham High School is to "outperform our potential," he said.


Hired as director of finance was Alicia Lang, who most recently worked as business manager for Cumby ISD, located near Sulphur Springs. Lang has also been a school district auditor for Rutherford Taylor, & Co. PC in Greenville.


The third administrative hire is Angie Richardson, director of special education. Richardson has been a diagnostician with the Fannin County Special Education Shared Services Arrangement for the past nine years, serving the Leonard, Blue Ridge, Ector and Savoy school districts. The position of director of special education oversees all 10 school districts within the FCSSA. Before her career in special education, Richardson was a teacher and coach for 14 years in Oklahoma.


All three administrators have begun working in their positions.
