Ryan Isgrig has been named the next athletic and activities director for Marshalltown High School.
Isgrig has served as activities director of Kuemper Catholic High School in Carroll since 2017. He has been varsity boys soccer coach at the school since 2014 and taught physical education at Kuemper Elementary School from 2014-17.
A native of Newton, Iowa, Isgrig holds a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education from the University of Northern Iowa.
“I’m very excited to be a Marshalltown Bobcat and grateful for the opportunity,” Isgrig said. “I want to continue the strong tradition of athletics and activities in Marshalltown and continue to make a difference by giving kids opportunities beyond the classroom.”
Isgrig said he has many family connections to Marshalltown as his parents both graduated from MHS and he had grandparents who taught in Marshalltown Schools. He will replace current MHS AD Rollie Ackerman who is planning his upcoming retirement. Isgrig will start on the job on July 1.
“Ryan Isgrig has proven himself to have the knowledge, skills, talent and ability to lead as a teacher, coach and activities director at a very high level, within a relatively short period of time,” said Marshalltown Schools Superintendent Dr. Theron Schutte. “I’m optimistic that his confidence, work ethic, drive for excellence and ability to positively relate to students, parents, staff and community will serve him and our school community well as the next activities director at Marshalltown HIgh School.”
Isgrig’s hiring was approved by the school board on April 8.
