After nearly nine years as principal at Menomonie High School, Mr. David Muñoz has notified the school district that he will be leaving at the end of the school year to become the district administrator in Mosinee, Wisconsin. On behalf of everyone in the SDMA, we wish Mr. Muñoz well and thank him for all of his great work and service in Menomonie.

Upon receiving notice of Mr. Muñoz’s upcoming departure, a comprehensive search for the next principal at Menomonie High School was immediately initiated.
