Wayne Pallett appointed Division Principal for Lethbridge School Division

Lethbridge School Division is pleased to announce the appointment of Wayne Pallett as a Division Principal, effective the 2024/2025 school year.
Pallett will be responsible for the International Education portfolio, which recently became open due to a retirement. Pallett will also have responsibilities in the area of career pathways, which includes working with the Southern Alberta Collegiate, dual credit, work experience, Registered Apprenticeship Program and other related areas. The initial appointment to this role will be for two years.
For the last nine years, Pallett has served as principal at Lethbridge Collegiate Institute, a school that features a rich tradition in academics, athletics and fine arts.
“I will miss the students and staff at LCI and the relationships made over the years,” said Pallett. “I will also miss the amazing programs from Drama, Band Choir and Dance, and attending athletic events where all our students perform at a high level in all areas.”
Pallett is looking forward to taking on the challenges associated with this role.
“I am excited for a new adventure in my career in supporting International Students and the exciting work the Division is doing related to career pathways,” he said. “Student programming is what I certainly enjoy and assisting our Division schools in supporting their programming.”
Pallett’s professional journey began with a teaching assignment in Grassy Lake at Chamberlain School. After three years in Grassy Lake, he spent 17 years as an administrator, teacher and coach at W.R. Myers High School in Taber.
His first position with Lethbridge School Division was as an administrator with Lethbridge Alternative Schools and Programs and Victoria Park High School, a position he held for six years.
Pallett graduated from Minot State University in Minot, North Dakota, with a Bachelor of Science in Education, and completed a Master's degree at Gonzaga University in 2006.
