The New Lisbon School District has hired a new High School and Junior High School Principal.  Mark Stamper has been hired to replace Gary Syftestad who left to work in the Weston School District as Principal.  Stamper began a week ago on September 9th.  Stamper grew up in Westby and attended college at UW-La Crosse.  He spent his first year in the Barneveld school district before taking a position in Flambeau.  Stamper wore many hats at Flambeau including serving as a Math teacher, Athletics coach, and Athletic Director.  The referendum to update the athletic complex at New Lisbon helped draw Stamper to the school district.  Stamper has a wife, four kids, and three granddaughters.
