Bechstein hired as middle school assistant principal

Bowling Green Board of Education voted Thursday during a special meeting to hire Michael Bechstein as assistant principal at the middle school. Bechstein, whose annual salary will be $62,000, has been working as a high school business education and technology teacher.

He takes the place of Alyssa Karaffa, who was recently hired as Crim Elementary principal. The former Crim principal, Melanie Garbig, was hired earlier this year as the district’s executive director of pupil services.
