The new Athletic Director at Pella High School began officially assumed his new duties this week. Dale Otte comes to Pella after four years as the A.D. at Saydel High School in Des Moines, and says the staff at Pella High have been very welcoming in his first days on the job.

“I’ve been in-and-out of the offices here and meeting coaches and getting to know the staff, and everything has been great,” says Otte. “The coaches and staff have been really welcoming to me and opening their arms to me, and it just makes me really excited to be a part of the staff here [at Pella High School]”

Dale Otte takes over for Bill VanHorn, who was granted early retirement last fall, after serving as the school’s A.D. for 14 years.
