'Culver High is the only place I put my hat in the ring.' Scott Novelli, New principal

COURTEST SCOTT NOVELLI - Scott Novelli and Family - new Culver Principal Culver High School has announced Scott Novelli as their new high school principal. Novelli currently teaches Physical Education and Health at Bend High School and has been in education for over 25 years.

"I'm excited to be there as a support, for staff, students and the teachers. The teachers are such an important part of the school, and I'm looking forward to moving into a support role after my many years of teaching," said Novelli.

Novelli is originally from California but has lived in Central Oregon for many years. He says that Culver High had long been a school he has admired, and he says it's the only place he'd want to be.

"Culver High is the only place I put my hat in the ring," said Novelli. "I wasn't looking for a new job. Culver High was the only place I would have gone."

Novelli brings years of education experience and is excited to return to a small, community school setting, similar to his first school in Northern California.

"I look forward to working in Culver. I'm excited to be at a small, more rural and agricultural school. It feels a lot like returning to my roots," said Novelli.

Culver School District superintendent Stefanie Garber said that choosing Novelli for the position was easy. "He has such a positive, high energy and very organized style," said Garber. "His focus on building staff relationships and giving kids what they need to graduate is so important."

Novelli lives on his family ranch outside of Tumalo with his wife, parents and two children, ages 12 and 16. His official start date is near the end of July, but he plans on jumping into the duties of the role as soon as possible.
