Assistant Principal's Message - Ashley Harigan
It is my privilege to serve as the 11th and 12th grade Assistant Principal at Marion L. Steele High School. I grew up in the Black River Schools and attended Heidelberg University in Tiffin, Ohio where I earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Middle Childhood Education. I earned a Masters of Education degree in Educational Leadership from Regent University in Virginia and I hold administrative licenses for an Elementary Principal, Middle School Principal, and High School Principal.
This school year marks my third with Amherst Exempted Village Schools. I look forward to working with all stakeholders as our students prepare for success beyond Marion L. Steele. My expectation is that every student at Steele feels valued and takes pride in their contribution and accomplishments to our community. I truly feel honored to work alongside outstanding educators who are here for every student, every day.
My husband, Brad, and our children, Jase (First Grade) and Alyssa (Kindergarten) live in Amherst and enjoy being a part of the Amherst community. Go Comets!
