The Tippecanoe School Corporation is pleased to announce some administrative changes at two schools. The TSC has selected Clint Wilson, the current assistant principal at Mayflower Mill Elementary School, as the assistant principal at Wea Ridge Middle School. He will replace David "DJ" Jensen who accepted a position with the Attica Consolidated School Corporation. TSC special education teacher Jill Pinkerton will step into the role vacated by Wilson at Mayflower Mill.

Pinkerton will gain experience in education at the administrative level at Mayflower Mill Elementary. She will oversee student discipline, special education, support staff and other duties at the school of more than 600 students. Pinkerton has more than 13 years of teaching experience, most recently in special education at Southwestern Middle School. She holds a bachelor's and master's degree from Purdue University.

Pinkerton is also a former Mayflower student. "I attended kindergarten, fifth and sixth grades as a Grinder," says Pinkerton. "I am grateful for the opportunity to support Mayflower families, teachers and administration in their drive for improvement and excellence."

"The TSC is fortunate to be surrounded by highly capable individuals who can step in and carry out the duties associated with these assignments," says TSC Superintendent Dr. Scott Hanback. "The TSC wishes Mr. Jensen the very best at Attica, his familiarity with that school district will no doubt allow him to be successful in his new position. The TSC welcomes Jill Pinkerton to the administrative team. Her experience and background will serve her well as she begins working in a new capacity at Mayflower Mill."
