Logan's principal to lead Viterbo Educational Leadership program

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - The man who coined the phrase, “It’s a Great Day to Be a Ranger” is retiring as the principal of the north side high school and taking on a position at Viterbo University.  Scott Mihalovic has led Logan High School since 1998 and is credited with growing a school that is rich in tradition and Ranger pride.

He announced Tuesday that the 2013-2014 was his last school year as principal.  Also on Tuesday, Viterbo University announced that Mihalovic is the school's new Educational Leadership Program Coordinator.

In his new position, Mihalovic will be in charge of programs which provide educational training for individuals interested in becoming principals, superintendents, or directors of student services or instructions.  Nearly 300 educators are currently enrolled in these programs provided by Viterbo.  His start date has not yet been announced.

Mihalovic will be taking over for Jim Bagniewski who is retiring from the position in August.

Mihalovic came to the School District of La Crosse in 1982 as an elementary physical education teacher, moving to the same position at Logan High School in 1985. He became the Associate Principal at Logan in 1988. He served as the Principal of Onalaska High School from 1996 – 1998 before returning to Logan as the school’s leader in 1998.
