Badger, Eastview Principals Resign; Straus Named Interim Principal at Badger

At their July meetings, the Badger High School and Lake Geneva Jt. #1 School Boards approved the resignations of two administrators, Russ Tronsen, Principal at Badger High School and Tami Martin, Principal at Eastview Elementary School. Both Tronsen and Martin taught in the districts prior to their appointments as principal. 

Dr. James Gottinger, District Administrator said Jennifer Straus, currently Badger’s Associate Principal, has been named Interim Principal for the 2019-2020 school year. In an email announcement to the Badger staff, Straus said, “I am excited and looking forward to working with our amazing staff to ensure that our students have access to rigorous curriculum, instructional equity, and all the opportunities Badger has to offer. We will continue to move forward with our school culture, literacy and data teams to do what is in the best interest of all our students.” 

“Jenny Straus will be up to the challenge to lead Badger High School during 2019-2020 school year as the Interim Principal,” said Gottinger. “She has been in her current role for ten years and that experience bodes well for her to be successful in her new role as Principal for the 2019-2020 school year. Badger is truly in good hands.” 

A search is underway to find a replacement with the goal to fill the position vacated by Martin. It is expected to be filled by the end of July. 

“They both have provided outstanding service to our school community,” stated Gottinger. “I know we all will miss them and wish them the very best as they advance both their professional and personal interests in their new environments.” 

Tronsen has accepted a position as Principal at Beaver Dam High School and Martin as a teacher for Traver School.
