EAST LIVERPOOL, OH- Progressive.  That’s a term that many districts use nationwide to describe where they want their districts.  In the halls of Beaver Local, it’s more than a cute buzzword, it’s a way of life.  Beaver Local Superintendent Eric Lowe has led by example with this mantra, and over the past 3 years especially- the district has produced progressively through their academics and athletics.  This week was no different when they brought on Bob Beam as their new full-time Athletic Director.

Beam has served as the AD at Leetonia this past year but comes with experience as a former athlete, coach, and administrator at notable stops such as Springfield Local, Boardman, and Cene Park in Struthers.

“I’m just very excited about the opportunity that Mr. Lowe, the Board of Education, and the entire community of Beaver Local for giving me the chance to be the head of their Athletic Department,” says Beam.

Beam will leave his job as a teacher at Springfield, a position he’s held since 1998.

“We are excited to have an individual committed in a full-time capacity to our athletic programs here at Beaver Local.  Mr. Beam stood out in the interview process along with being highly recommended by a number of superintendents and athletic administrators that we spoke with.  I know Mr. Beam is eager to meet our community stakeholders, begin working with coaches, student-athletes, and our athletic programs.  He has a number of varied experiences in the world of athletics which we feel will serve as an asset to our athletic programs throughout the district.  We are excited to have Mr. Beam as a part of the Beaver Local School Community.” said Beaver Local Superintendent, Eric Lowe.

“Every job that you take has their challenges, and being an Athletic Director is no different.  But, just being out at Beaver Local- everyone has made me so welcome, and the facilities and the sports that they offer…the amount of opportunities that they have for the kids out there is just so overwhelming, and it just felt like the right fit.” Beam added.

Beam intends on building relationships and trust in the community as one of the first things he accomplishes upon his arrival.
