Vahle (pronounced volley) will fill the position vacated by the Midge Mougey, who is retiring at the end of the school year.

Vahle has 15 years experience as a K-12 art teacher in Elm Creek, Associate Superintendent Tami Eshleman said. Eshleman and Superintendent Marty Bassett recommended her for the position.

Vahle has a Bachelor of Arts in Education as well as Masters in both Art Education and K-12 Administration. She received her degrees from University of Nebraska at Kearney.

Vahle also has current Nebraska certification for both teaching and administration.

Eshleman said a large pool of candidates applies for the position and were interviewed by administrators, an elementary principal, the building staff and teachers. Candidates were given a tour of both Lake and Osgood Elementary schools before the interview.

“Robin is excited for the opportunity to be part of North Platte Public Schools,” Eshleman said. “She will be working with Dr. Mougey through this transition. Robin is very thoughtful and will continue the strong leadership.”

Vahle will move to North Platte with her husband Mark and daughter, Addyson, who will start Kindergarten in the fall.

During the school board meeting Tuesday, Mougey gave a report on the Lake and Osgood schools, then bid farewell.

"It's been a great honor to serve for 16 years as principal at the Lake, Osgood and Jefferson, and in other capacities since 1986," she said. 

Moughey said a record number of parents and students are attending once-a-month after-school activities at the schools, which shows students how important they are. She said the schools' facebook has more than 800 photos of students and activities.  And, thanks to grant money, the two schools will present a special 3-dimension showing of "Flight of the Butterflies" at the Carmike Theater. The movie follows the migration of the Monarch butterflies to Mexico. It is based on 40 years of research. Seven hundred and fifty students are expected to attend the three showings.
