HPSD Supt. Murray Marran sasy he is confident in King’s promotion.

“Mr. King brings to our Division experience building strong community relationships in rural and Indigenous communities,” Marran said in a news release.

“Further, Mr. King will bring renewed focus to academics and assessment practices at Kinuso School.”

King will succeed Susan LeBlanc-Ward, who will become the new principal at C.J. Schurter School at Slave Lake.
