Madden leaves Elmwood to become Somerset HS Principal

ELMWOOD - For the last five years, Shawn Madden has worn many hats with the Elmwood School District as he's been Elementary, Middle School and Assistant High School Principal.

Starting July 1, Madden will only be wearing one - 9-12 High School Principal of the Somerset School District. The Somerset School Board approved the hiring of Madden in its meeting Monday night.

Madden said family was the main reason for the new job as he and his wife Kari, are the parents of two young boys, Ty and Kade.

"Family came first," he said. "Somerset is a place where I know my kids can start and end their high school education. It was an opportunity I couldn't pass up."
