“I am pleased that Corey will be joining our administrative team this summer and I am looking forward to his leadership as an assistant principal and athletic director,” said EHS Principal Dathan Fischer. “His previous experience at Emporia High School will allow him the opportunity to hit the ground running while sharing new ideas and building relationships with our staff and students. This is an exciting time for EHS and I look forward to Corey being a part of it.”
