OAK HARBOR—The Benton-Carroll-Salem School Board announced two new leaders at its board meeting last week. Geoff Halsey will join the B-C-S team as the new Director of Administrative Services, replacing Cathy Bergman, who will become B-C-S Superintendent on Tuesday, Aug. 1.
Halsey has been the Principal at Bataan Intermediate School in Port Clinton since 2013. Prior to joining Port Clinton City Schools, Halsey served as the Director of Technology for Danbury Local Schools.
Halsey also has several years of experience as an English and Language Arts teacher in both Ohio and Indiana. Halsey earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Bowling Green State University, as well as a Master of Education Degree in Classroom Technology. He also holds a Masters Degree in Educational Administration from Ashland University.
Brian Kaser will join the B-C-S family as the new Assistant Principal of Oak Harbor High School, replacing Alison Wolf. Most recently, Kaser served as Assistant Principal for Washington Local Schools in Toledo. Kaser also has eight years experience as a mathematics teacher at Toledo Whitmer High School.
Kaser earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics Education from Indiana Weslyan University and Master’s Degree in Administration from Concordia University.
“Mrs. Bergman and I are both very excited to welcome these two experienced and student-centered leaders to B-C-S. They are both excited to jump in and begin to meet staff, students, and community members,” said outgoing Superintendent Guy Parmigian.
Parmigian had announced in April that he will return to his alma mater in July as a professor at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
