Oman named next principal at Lincoln Elementary


Grand Island Public Schools is pleased to announce Maureen Oman will be the next principal at Lincoln Elementary. Oman will replace Brad Wentzlaff who is retiring at the end of this year.

Oman is currently in her fifteenth year as principal at Engleman Elementary.

"Maureen has done an excellent job building relationships with the Engleman students and parents," said Dr. Robert Winter, GIPS superintendent. "Her wealth of experience will support the strong Lincoln community Brad Wentzlaff and staff have developed for decades."

Engleman was Oman's first principal job.

"Engleman Elementary has been my home for the past fifteen years," Oman said. "I have been blessed to work in a school where the students, parents and staff are so supportive of learning."

Oman takes over at Lincoln, where Wentzlaff has been principal for 20 years.

"Moving to Lincoln Elementary is an opportunity for me learn and grow as an administrator," Oman said. "I'm looking forward to the new challenges and am excited to start creating relationships with students, families and staff."
