La Salle Schools say farewell to McGuire

Posted by wlpo on June 1, 2009

Students and faculty in the La Salle Elementary District said thanks and goodbye to their superintendent. An assembly at Northwest School Monday morning honored the retiring Dr. Joan McGuire.

McGuire came to the district in 1991 as a principal. She became the superintendent four years ago.

Dan Marenda, superintendant of Spring Valley Elementary, was hired Friday to replace her. Marenda was in Spring Valley for four years. Before that he was a principal with the Ottawa Elementary district.

Marenda will be meet with former superintend Al Humpage and Lincoln Junior High principal Jerry Carls during the transition.

The La Salle district next must hire a new principal to replace Northwest principal Egan Colbrese who’s accepted a job near the Quad Cities.
