'A great district with great people'

Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn checks all the boxes for new HS Principal Blake Wendt


July 13, 2023


New H-M-S High School Principal Blake Wendt previously taught math at Okoboji and Chamberlain, S.D., before making the move to administration.

Blake Wendt always had an eye on school administration.

The Le Mars native grew up in a family with strong ties to K-12 education. His father was a superintendent, his mom was a high school principal, one of his grandfathers was an administrator and both of his grandmothers were teachers.

With that type of lineage, Wendt's career path is really no surprise.

"I knew I wanted to be a teacher," he said. "I loved my time in the classroom but I always had a heart for administration. I decided that it was time for me to continue my career in education by going down the administrative path."
