Gay Frazee is Axtell’s new Interim Principal
This week, due to the resignation of Mrs. Alana Seddon, as Principal of the Axtell Public Schools, Mrs. Gay Frazee has been hired as the new Interim Principal.
On Friday, Sept. 16, Seddon shared the reasons for her resignation in a letter to the parents.
“I am sad to report that I have resigned from my position as Principal of Axtell Public School. My last day will be this Friday, September 16, 2022. Please know that this decision was incredibly difficult for myself and my family because I have formed some wonderful relationships, and have truly enjoyed my time here. The students here have been amazing to work with!
My youngest son has been very sick for a while, and a recent set of doctor’s appointments about two weeks ago revealed a much more complicated situation than we anticipated. This caused quite a bit of reflection, and the realization that I need to be home more helping my son and husband take care of everything. We are continuing to search for answers for his illness and a direct path to recovery, hopefully including Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
It has been a pleasure to work with everyone. Thank you for letting me be a part of the Axtell Eagle Family. I wish you all the best, and please continue to take care of each other with grace and compassion!”
Superintendent Todd Evans announced that Frazee is the new Interim Principal.
“Mrs. Frazee is a lifelong member of the Summerfield community,” Evans said. “She taught at the Marysville Schools for 29 years as a Family and Consumer Science teacher. USD 113 is excited about the positive impact that her experience, energy and educational insight will have on the students of the Axtell Public Schools! Please help us welcome Mrs. Frazee to the Axtell School family!”
