LWE Director Out

Recommended Posts

I can't say I know a lot about this subject, but I thought any LWE alums here should know.  LWE Music Department Chair T. Clifton Smith is no longer working at the High School.  That is all I know.  Smith took the program over in 2003 and has since built a successful music program at the school. 

 

The circumstances of this information are unknown.

My understanding is Mr. Smith submitted his resignation due to personal reasons to the school board last night, effective immediately.  The students were told today, and a search will begin immediately to find his replacement.

 

We wish Mr. Smith all the best.

Bert Johnson is now listed on the Lincoln-Way website as Music Department chair at East, the same position that he held at North is now open, and Lincoln-Way Community has a posting on their website for an assistant opening at North, which leads me to believe that Kirk Hickman has been named Director of Bands at LWN.

Justin Barnish, assistant director of bands at Mahomet-Seymour, has been hired as assistant director of bands at Lincoln-Way North.

 

The directors are now as follows:

North: Hickman-Barnish

East: Johnson-Mroczek

Central: Wellman

West: Ruklic-Rusek
