Getting comfortable in their offices last week were two new school administrators hired by the Onamia School District 480.

Scott Klicker is the new school activities director (AD) replacing the retired Mike Zea. He will also serve as the new high school dean of students, replacing Jim Stott who has taken a position at Mille Lacs Academy.

Klicker is a 1999 graduate of Menahga High School, and earned his post-secondary degree at Bemidji State University.

He says his new job fits him well since he was also dean of students and AD at his previous venue in Rosholt, South Dakota.

Mrs. Chelsea Junge, a resident with her husband in Nowthen, will commute to her new jobs as Pre-K – 5 assistant principal and title I director, replacing last year’s buildings operations manager, Jason Long, who was hired on a SIG grant, and taking on the job of title I director held by Melissa Maxwell, who also moved on to a position at Mille Lacs Academy.

Junge is a 2005 graduate of Forest Lake High School and earned her undergraduate degree at Winona State University. She attained her masters degree in K-12 Literacy at the University of Minnesota, and comes to Onamia with a K-12 administrative license.

Her most previous work was in the North St. Paul school district.
