Former principal returns in new role
It wasn't as dramatic a return as Brett Favre with the Vikings, but New Richmond saw its own version of a comeback last week.
Mike Ballard is back as a principal in the New Richmond School District.
After serving as the principal at Westside Elementary in River Falls for four years, the former New Richmond Middle School principal has decided to return and serve as Paperjack Elementary's new principal. He replaces Steve Wojan, who retired at the end of the last school year.
