Springfield Public Schools announced Friday that Lee Ann Neill will succeed the retiring Jean Grabeel as the district’s new director of health services.

Neill is a veteran in the district, working 19 years as a school nurse and the last eight as coordinator for health services.

“I am thankful for this opportunity to continue working with a wonderful group of school nurses to offer quality services to the district’s students and staff,” said Neill, in a news release. “It has been my privilege to learn from Jean Grabeel. Continuity within the district’s health services department is beneficial for all those we serve.”

Grabeel will retire this summer after 30 years in the district.

Neill is an active member of Missouri Association of School Nurses and the National Association of School Nurses, and has served on the boards for both groups.
