Mrs. Headrick will take over for the 2022-2023 school year.
At the April 4, 2022 school board meeting, Leasa Headrick was approved as the next principal for Kreft Primary School. Below is an email Dr. Knost sent to Kreft staff making the announcement.
We are excited to announce that Leasa Hedrick is being recommended to the Lewis Central Board of Education as the next Principal for Kreft Primary. The Board will consider this recommendation at their regularly scheduled meeting this evening.
Leasa has returned to the Council Bluffs area after serving as a Reading Specialist, Instructional Coach and Assistant Principal in Texas. Prior to that time she served locally as a teacher for St. Alberts and for the Omaha Public Schools. Early in her career, Leasa also had a role in assisting with our LCLC program, and she happens to be a graduate of Lewis Central.
Leasa comes to us as a highly recommended candidate. Her most recent principal expressed that everyone at their school, "loves and adores her," and she credits Leasa for spearheading much of the work that has excelled student performance in their building.
Leasa is beyond excited to return to her alma mater as the Principal for Kreft, and to learn and grow alongside all her new colleagues. Please join me in welcoming LC's newest addition to our staff, Leasa Hedrick, the 2022-23 Principal for Kreft Primary.
