Westlake school board appoints HR director

Brady Sheets

Fairview High School and Mayer Middle School principal Brady Sheets was appointed director of human resources by the Westlake Board of Education at its July 3 meeting.

Sheets has served as principal of Fairview High School and Mayer Middle School since 2011. He also served as assistant principal at Olmsted Falls High School for five years, assistant principal at Lee Burneson Middle School for one year and principal at Fort Jennings High School for three years. He taught English and served as the athletic director at Arcadia High School for five years.

He is experienced in facilitating professional development, district budget development, human resources development and continuous improvement planning.

“Brady’s administrative experiences on the educational and operations sides of education at a variety of high-performing districts make him uniquely suited to take on the role of Director of Human Resources for the Westlake City Schools,” said Superintendent Geoff Palmer. “We look forward to him joining our administrative team in all of our future collaborative endeavors."

Sheets earned his undergraduate degree in English education from Bowling Green State University, and his graduate degree in educational administration from the University of Findlay. He is attending Cleveland State University to earn a doctorate in urban education, educational administration.

“This was a unique opportunity for me because it allows me to work in an area that is of great interest to me, and it also provides me the chance to work in a district with which I am already familiar,” Sheets said. “The Westlake school system and community is a wonderful place with excellent leadership, and I look forward to being a part of that once again.”

Sheets replaces Anne Pyros, who accepted the position of associate superintendent in the North Olmsted City Schools. He resides in North Ridgeville with his wife, Lorena.
