School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake) announced today that Principal Misty Terpstra will transfer from Nelson Wildflower School to Salmo Elementary School to serve as the new school principal.

Principal Terpstra will assume the school leadership role from Principal Dawn Snell whose move to South Nelson Elementary school was announced in May.
