“I am extremely excited to join a school district that has such a history of achievement in athletics and activities,” Huegel said. “As I met people during this process, the passion Marshalltown has for its students and its activities made an impression on me.”

Huegel is currently activities/athletics director and At-Risk coordinator for Martensdale-St. Mary’s School District. Previously he served as activities director for North Polk Schools from 2007 to 2011. There he was also an assistant varsity football coach and head varsity boys track coach, as well as social studies teacher.
