A change in leadership has occurred at Holbrook Indian School. Pedro L. Ojeda, M.Ed., assumed the prin-cipal position on July 1.
Ojeda is an experienced educator of 24 years. He earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration and became the business manager and vice principal at Calexico Mission School in Calexico, Calif. Serving as vice principal fueled his desire to become a credentialed teacher with the intent of becoming a principal. Ojeda moved to Reno, Nev., where he attended graduate school, earning a master’s degree in elementary education along with a teaching credential.
Following teaching positions in Reno and Bozeman, Mont., Ojeda felt impressed to enroll in the Educa-tional Leadership Program at Montana State University, where he earned an administrator’s credential.
Ojeda has been blessed with multiple experiences during his years of service in education. His desire is to help children learn and be successful in school. He believes in building relationships that foster good commu-nication between teachers and students.
Holbrook Indian School is a Seventh-day Adventist boarding school for grades 1-12. The school first opened its doors in August 1946, and recently celebrated 65 years of service to the Native American and Hol-brook communities.
