NEW BUFFALO — The New Buffalo Area Schools Board of Education accepted with regret the resignation of Middle School Principal Bradley Brunner effective June 30, 2022, during a special June 1 meeting.

The following letter was read during the session:

Upon return from South Korea, as the global COVID-19 pandemic raged, the New Buffalo Area Schools accepted my family and me into the school community. I am grateful for the opportunity to provide leadership to the middle school in the most uncertain of circumstances. I am grateful that the New Buffalo Area Schools allowed my children to move forward with their education. Thank you!

Although I am resigning as Principal of the New Buffalo Area Schools, I am not resigning from my commitment to the New Buffalo community. I look forward to future opportunities to serve the community!

Please accept my resignation as Principal of New Buffalo Middle School effective June 30th, 2022.

Brunner was principal for two years.

Following the brief special meeting, New Buffalo Superintendent Dr. Jeff Leslie said Brunner has accepted a position with The College Board, a firm that specializes in standardized tests.
