Sturgeon Bay names new principal

Sturgeon Bay School District has found its replacement for retiring high school Principal Bob Nickel. The school board approved the hiring of Keith Nerby at its meeting earlier this week. Nerby boasts a long list of administrative roles in the past, including holding the principal title at Hamilton High School in Sussex, Karcher Middle School in Burlington, and most recently at Sun Prairie High School. Superintendent Dan Tjernagel says Nerby is battle-tested after juggling principal duties at Sun Prairie while the high school switched buildings, its secondary level was redistricted, and the whole district struggled with reopening during the pandemic.

Tjernagel added that Nerby is excited to join the administrative team at Sturgeon Bay School District for the upcoming school year and be a part of the community. Nerby will begin his new role on July 1st.
