The changes continue in the Bethalto School District. The Bethalto School Board named a new principal for Civic Memorial High School earlier this week and it's a name familiar to the students. Aaron Kilpatrick was named to the post by a unanimous vote this week.
Kilpatrick has served as the administrator for the alternative school program in the district, known as CM-West, as well as an administrator at CM, and at Trimpe Middle School. He is currently Dean of Students at the high school. Kilpatrick will take over for Justin Newell who will take over as the new curriculum director for the Bethalto School District this fall. Newell steps in for Dr. Jill Griffin who will be the new district superintendent starting in July.
