After six years of service  at L’Anse Area Schools (LAS), Superintendent Carrie Meyer is moving her career a little closer to home. Effective Monday, Nov. 30, 2015, Meyer will start her superintendency with Ishpeming Public Schools. The LAS board of education, and administrators gathered one final time in the board’s meeting room for an informal farewell get-together Tuesday, Nov. 24. Meyer began her career at L’Anse on July 1, 2009 as the district’s new junior/senior high school principal. Four years later to the day, she took over operations of the district after long-time superintendent Ray Pasquali announced his retirement. After 2.5 years at the district’s helm, she’s taking a position a little closer to home.  To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
