Principal's Welcome

Mr. Ron Ehlers

More than 30 years ago I began my teaching career in Lake Worth, Florida - quite a ways from my hometown of Kalamazoo.  After teaching for 5 years, my career path moved me into the business world where I enjoyed a number of years as a sales representative for several companies.  However, it is in education that I find my true calling - evidenced by the fact that this is my 14th year back in the schools - 10 of which I have served as an administrator.

It is my pleasure to work in the Sturgis school district with the fine staff and students we have here at the high school.  Each year I look forward to meeting our new freshmen and watching the growth of all our students between September and June.  I feel fortunate to have such a rewarding career.

It is my goal - indeed the goal of our entire staff - to make our SHS student's experiences positive and enriching and we thank you for sharing your student with us.
