He earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and history from Bradley University, Peoria, Ill., in 1998.
He completed his master’s degree in curriculum and instruction in 2002 and his educational leadership certificate in 2006, both from National-Louis University, Wheeling, Ill.
LaDage will take over for Mary Jo Schmid, who retires at the end of June.
