The Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation board of trustees officially named Brandon Kresca the new assistant principal of Tippecanoe Valley High School at the February 12th board meeting.
Kresca comes to TVHS from Grissom Middle School in the Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation where he has taught 8th grade language arts since 2012.
“Brandon is a perfect fit for TVHS because of his passion for kids and all things education. He is a true professional and an even better person. He has a proven track record as a coach, educator and leader,” said TVHS Principal Chad Cripe.
Kresca is a 2008 graduate of New Prairie High School. He earned his bachelor’s degree in English education from Purdue University in 2012 and his master’s degree in education and school administration from Bethel College in April 2017.
“I’m very excited to be a part of this community. I hope to do great things with Mr. Cripe, the staff and the students. I really look forward to that and thank them for the opportunity,” said Kresca.
TVSC Superintendent Brett Boggs said Kresca is a talented young educator with outstanding leadership qualities.
“He listens well and values the ideas and input of others. Mr. Kresca’s passion for public education, his willingness to go above and beyond for the betterment of students, and his strong personal integrity and character will make him an outstanding addition to our staff,” said Boggs.
Kresca’s first day at TVHS will be Monday, February 19th. He replaces Jon Hutton, former TVHS assistant principal, who took a teaching position at the beginning of the second semester that was left vacant from a medical leave.
