Marshall Retires

Posted on 6th January 2012 at 09:06

The Kelso School District is beginning the process of finding a new Principal for Kelso High School, as Adele Marshall announces her retirement. Marshall has been Kelso’s Principal since 2006. She came to the Kelso District in 2004, after nearly 30 years of work in the Longview School District. She started as a teacher in the Longview schools back in 1976. In 1987, she transitioned into a school counselor position, then was named Assistant Principal at Cascade Middle School. In 1997, Marshall moved up to be an Assistant Principal at R. A. Long High School, then was named as Principal at Coweeman Middle School in Kelso in 2004. Marshall’s formal retirement request will be presented at next Monday’s Kelso School Board meeting; she says that it’s been an “incredible journey,” but it’s now time for “new challenges.” Marshall says that it’s been a wonderful experience to work in Kelso Schools; she also says that being an educator has given her an opportunity to work with “our greatest asset, our youth.”
