New principal at Ekalaka Public Schools
September 4, 2020
A phone call out of the blue led Stephen Ely and his wife, Melissa, to Ekalaka for a visit earlier this summer.
"We fell in love," the new principal at Ekalaka Public Schools told the Eagle.
Mr. and Mrs. Ely arrived in Ekalaka right before the 2020-21 school year started. They made the move across the country all the way from Florida.
This is Ely's thirty-first year in education. He has been a football coach, business teacher, and has spent the last 16 years of his career in administration, working as a principal in elementary, middle school, high school and at the district level.
