Introducing our Acting Superintendent

Nov 5, 2021

Board of Trustees

We are pleased to announce that Shawna Walter, Associate Superintendent Education Services, has been appointed Acting Superintendent of Sturgeon Public Schools, effective November 4, 2021. Shawna will remain in this role for the remainder of the 2021-22 school year.

We wish outgoing Superintendent, Mary Lynne R. Campbell, all the best in her retirement as we go through the process of transition.

In early 2022, the Board will begin the recruiting process for a new permanent Superintendent to start in July 2022.

“We know that Shawna has the “right stuff” to lead us in this time of transition and we are looking forward to exciting days ahead,” says Joe Dwyer, Board Chair, Sturgeon Public Schools.

Congratulations Shawna!



*edit for clarification: (November 23, 2021)

Superintendent Campbell has not retired. Superintendent Campbell is currently away on extended medical leave recovering from complications arising from knee replacement surgery. Superintendent Campbell had previously announced her intention to retire and that intention has not changed. 

Sturgeon Public Schools appointed Shawna Walter as acting Superintendent until the earlier of June 30, 2021 or the return of incumbent Superintendent Campbell. Sturgeon Public School apologizes for any misunderstanding.
