Fowler named assistant principal at Penn Manor HS

Mike Fowler, a former Penn Manor High School math teacher, has been named assistant principal at the high school.

Mike worked as a math teacher from 2007 through the 2020-2021 school year, teaching primarily statistics and algebra. He also was an alternative education teacher.

From 2012 to 2018, he was head coach of the Penn Manor wrestling team after serving five years as assistant coach. While he was head coach, the team had four state medal winners, eight state qualifiers and two district champions.

After earning his bachelor’s degree in secondary education from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, Mike earned his master’s degree in education from the University of Phoenix and his principal certification from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

He replaces former assistant principal Jason D’Amico, who left the district this summer. Mike lives in Willow Street with his wife, Ashley, and their two children.

“Mike has demonstrated his ability to work with students, families, and colleagues during his 14 year teaching and coaching career at Penn Manor High School. He will make a positive contribution to the high school and administrative team,” said Phil Gale, Penn Manor assistant superintendent for secondary education.

Welcome, Mike, to your new role at Penn Manor High School.
