A Grand Island school is welcoming a new principal.
Opal Bentley will become the new leader at Knickrehm Elementary School in August.
“I am just so humbled,” she said.
She comes from a background working with the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS), (a system of offering more academic and emotional help to students) which she hopes to expand upon at GIPS.
“MTTS does have a real impact on kids,” she said.
Bentley has been with GIPS since January, most recently working as a student success liason at Starr Elementary School.
Bentley will be taking over the position vacated by Rob Bishop, who is taking on a new role.
