EDMOND — Angela Mills Grunewald has been named Edmond Public Schools associate superintendent of educational services. She succeeds Ruthie Riggs, who is retiring in August after 22 years with the district.

Grunewald has 28 years of experience in public education. From 2003-2008, she served as both principal and assistant principal of Charles Haskell Elementary School. She was principal of Sequoyah Middle School from 2008-2011.

She worked for Piedmont and Mustang schools from 2011-2016 before returning to Edmond last June as executive director of elementary education.

“I cannot think of a more exciting yet challenging time in education," Grunewald said. "To be a part of a district that is leading the way in providing the best possible education to all students is a true honor."

Superintendent Bret Towne praised Mills as an accomplished educator.

“Dr. Grunewald is well-positioned and prepared to lead Edmond's education services department,” Towne said.

“Her experience as an elementary and middle school principal, as well as her time spent leading curriculum and instruction in two other school districts gives her a unique background to direct this dynamic, critical department within our district.”
