Shelby hires Hamilton principal as new superintendent.


SHELBY — The Shelby Board of Education voted unanimously to hire Hamilton High School Principal Tim Reeves as the new superintendent of Shelby Public Schools.

Reeves replaces Dan Bauer, who will be retiring at the end of January.

Reeves also has administrative experience at the elementary and middle school level and has been an administrator in the Hamilton Community Schools and Kellogsville Public Schools for over a decade.

Reeves is a graduate of Hope College where he received an undergraduate degree in business and a teaching degree. His master’s degree is from Grand Valley State University in educational leadership.

“I am excited about the great opportunity to serve the Shelby community. They have a very solid tradition and, hopefully, through collaboration and hard work, we can continue to move the school district forward as we keep our eye on student achievement. I look forward to working with Mr. Bauer during the transition, along with the board of education, administrative team and staff as we move forward,” Reeves stated.

The superintendent will begin his duties Feb. 1, 2018, and his contract runs through June of 2020.

Shelby Middle School Principal Mark Olmstead, former Walkerville Public Schools Superintendent Michael Sweet and Executive Director of Elementary Education for Rochester Community Schools Michael Behrmann were among the four candidates interviewed for the Shelby superintendent position.
