EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Memorial High School students are back in the classroom.

It’s one of several Evansville Diocese schools that are back in session.

Those heading to Memorial will have a new principal this year.

Aaron Schmitt is no stranger to students though. He has been a social studies teacher and department chair there.

Plus, he’s a 2004 graduate of Memorial with degrees from the University of Southern Indiana and Ball State University.

Schmitt has taught at Memorial for 13 years and is also the junior varsity baseball coach.

He said it’s exciting to help start the school year in his new position.

“I think the thing I’m looking forward to the most is the ability to work with the amazing teachers here,” Schmitt said. “The ability to have a bigger impact that I was already having in the classroom, and the ability to build on the tradition that we have here at Memorial.”

Memorial is one of ten schools stepping up to the Sunrise School Spirit Challenge this year.

You can catch their big morning on October 14.
