Bay County Superintendent Bill Husfelt has appointed a new principal for Deane Bozeman School.
Husfelt has accepted the selection committee's recommendation of Josh Balkom. Balkom is currently the Assistant Principal for Guidance at Bay High School. He replaces Bill Payne.
Payne resigned on November 22nd after school board attorneys released a report showing he had an inappropriate relationship with another school administrator.
Balkom still needs the approval of the Bay County School Board, which will consider the appointment at the December 13th board meeting. If approved, Balkom will start immediately
