Michael Wingert to take over as principal at Justice

Posted on Jul. 20 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
An experienced central Indiana educator is making the move to Marion Community Schools to take the reins at Justice Intermediate School.

Michael Wingert, who will take over as principal at Justice Intermediate School starting July 21, is committed to visionary leadership and collaborative teamwork. With 15 years in education, he has a strong foundation to build on as he moves into the leadership role at Justice Intermediate School.

Welcome, Principal Wingert!

“I appreciate the opportunity to serve as principal at Justice Intermediate School. I’m looking forward to getting to know the staff, getting to know the students, and to working with them and their families to build on the positives already in place,” Wingert said. “Justice Intermediate will continue to have high expectations for our students and anyone who comes into contact with them as part of their education. We will continue to engage the community and expand opportunities to work together to provide the best for our students.”

Wingert most recently served as assistant principal at R.J. Baskett Middle School in Gas City, and prior to that at Northview Elementary School. He previously spent 13 years teaching within Muncie Community Schools.

"Justice Intermediate is an exciting, student-friendly, learning-centered school. Our administrators, faculty, staff, students, and parents have created this winning culture. Mike Wingert will take the principal baton and continue to lead our school upward!” Marion Community Schools Superintendent Brad Lindsay said. “Mike is a positive, professional, and caring educator. He will bring a combination of fun and joy to the Justice culture, along with strong, consistent, and fair discipline. He will build on the positive, vibrant, and safe Justice learning environment that inspires student success. We have an outstanding team and school at Justice Intermediate, and we believe this is going to be an exciting, fun, and productive school year for our students, staff, and families.”  

He holds a bachelor’s degree from Anderson University and a master’s degree from Ball State University. He completed the principal’s licensure program at Indiana Wesleyan University.

Former Justice Principal Melissa Richards has accepted an elementary education director position with Fort Wayne Community Schools.
