St. Agatha woman named SAD 33 athletic director

ST. AGATHA, Maine — SAD 33 students will find a familiar face in their new athletic director. Wisdom Middle/High school assistant soccer coach Tammie Lerman has taken over the position after Scott Pelletier resigned. 

Pelletier, who served as athletic director for two years, will continue to teach at the high school and coach the Pioneer girls basketball team. He said Lerman has long been involved with the district’s athletic programs and is a good choice for the job. 

“She was active in the booster club and has always contributed her time and effort behind the scenes to help make things work whenever possible,” Pelletier said. “She has the best interest of all student athletes in mind and will play a supportive role for the coaches. I wish nothing but the best for her and will be there for her if needed.” 

Lerman has a long history of coaching athletics, from youth rec programs to middle and high school sports. She will continue as assistant coach of the girls varsity soccer team.

“I am pleased to be entering the athletic director position knowing I have wonderful coaches, administrators, parents, and student athletes to be working with. We have the right people in the right places,” Lerman said. “Wisdom Middle/ High School has raised the bar in each and every sport these past years. These successes are largely due to the dedicated and focused coaches we have.”

Lerman said she plans to continue the work Pelletier has done to improve the district athletic programs. 

“I have big shoes to fill but I find reassurance knowing he’s not going anywhere,” Lerman said. 

Lerman and her husband Doug share two daughters, Abbie and Ava Lerman who attend Wisdom High School and are active in sports.

The couple owns and operates Ken L Electric and Long Lake Inn.
