My name is Steve Irelan and I am the Principal of Lincoln High School. I am set to begin my fifth year at LHS and I truly love being here. I am married to Mrs. Brena Irelan, who teaches at Owosso High School and I have three terrific daughters, two of which are Alumni from Owosso High School and one who is currently attend Owosso Public Schools.
Prior to coming to Lincoln High School, I spent 11 years working with at-risk youth with the Shiawassee County Family Court. I worked in various positions, but at the end, I was the Director of the Shiawassee County Youth Center. My experience in that position helped to prepare me in working with at-risk students. I loved that experience, because through it all, I learned that they were just kids. Kids who need support. Kids who need love, protection, accountability and guidance in order to see and have hope. They are some of the brightest and most talented kids I know. That is the same thing I see at Lincoln High School. I am excited to grow my understanding to help these students achieve all they can.
In all of my spare time, I spend time with my family, attend as many of their activities as I can and promote the great things happening in Owosso Public Schools and in our community in general. I serve as President of the Owosso Sports Boosters and I am a former Board Member of Shiawassee Hope, both local 501c3 non-profits.
I am looking forward to a great year.
Mr. Steve Irelan
