New Prairie "Shelt" Shocked at Principal's Departure

(New Carlisle, IN) - At New Prairie, the NP right now stands for No Principal. The high school’s chief executive, JR Shelt has resigned and will take over elsewhere before this school year even ends.


Shelt came to New Prairie just last summer from the Indianapolis area, and it appears he’s heading back. Shelt takes over on Monday as principal at Arsenal Tech. It’s a bit of a homecoming. Shelt started his teaching career at Arsenal.


New Prairie is currently searching for his replacement.
