BEAVERCREEK – The Beavercreek School Board presented Jeffrey Jones and Susan Peveler as the new principals for Beavercreek High School and Shaw Elementary School, due to the resignations of the current principals in the district.

Jeffrey Jones, appointed as the principal of Beavercreek High School beginning the upcoming school year, comes to the district as a previous principal from Big Walnut High School in Sunbury near Columbus.

“I cannot wait to get started. I already feel behind, that’s just who I am,” Jones said. “I’m ready to dig in.”

Jones also served as a vice-principal at Hayes High School in Delaware, Ohio and has over 15 years of teaching and coaching experience in a number of districts. He earned his degrees at Otterbein College, Ohio State University and Ashland University.

Sitting in the school board meeting, wearing orange and black, he introduced his family and told the board about his strong family values and is looking forward to integrating his family into the Beavercreek community and schools.

“We’re fortunate to have a professional of his caliber in such an important position. I’m confident his leadership will pave the way for student success and help our district continue to be one of the best in Ohio,” Dr. William McGlothlin, Superintendent of Beavercreek Schools said.

Susan Peveler accepted the invitation to become the new principal for the Shaw Elementary School, starting also at the beginning of the next school year in the fall.

“I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity,” Peveler said. “I’ve already been so impressed with the climate and culture of this district and the academic excellence. I’m so glad to be a part of the team. I’m looking forward to leading Shaw and getting to know all of you more.”

Peveler’s assistant principal position at White Oak Middle School in Hamilton County paved the way to her new position in Beavercreek. She was also a Gifted Intervention Specialist and teacher for the Monfort Heights Elementary in Cincinnati and was also a teacher for some time in Virginia.

She received her degrees from Old Dominion University and the University of Cincinnati. She completed her bachelor’s degree in human services counseling and Master’s degree in educational leadership.

The Beavercreek City School officials provided a warm welcome for the new additions to the Beavercreek family.
