Approval expected for White Pigeon superintendent

White Pigeon Community Schools is set to hire one of its own to lead the 730-student district.

Pending the formality of board approval next week, Shelly McBride will become the district’s superintendent July 1. She replaces the two-person administrative team of Jon Keyer and Carrie Erlandson, who both retired at the conclusion of the 2021-22 school year.

McBride, a 1997 White Pigeon High School graduate, has spent the past 13 years as principal at Central Elementary in White Pigeon.

Board president Nicole Sigler said McBride’s post at Central Elementary will be filled by Eric Kistler, who most recently served as the district’s jr./sr. high assistant principal and athletic director the past six years. Brooke McClure, who has served as assistant principal with McBride at Central, will replace Kistler.

The district’s board of education meets Tuesday next week, at which time a contract for the 43-year-old McBride is expected to be approved. Sigler said McBride’s salary is being negotiated and will be formalized at the meeting.
