The Walled Lake Consolidated Schools’ Board of Education appointed Ali Hamka the district’s new assistant superintendent of human resources during the May 23, 2024 meeting.

“I am excited to embark on a new journey as the assistant superintendent of human resources, while remaining a member of Walled Lake Consolidated Schools!” said Hamka. “I am also looking forward to making a meaningful impact and growing alongside an incredible team and supporting our amazing staff and school district.”

Hamka has been with the district since 2018 serving as the principal at Walled Lake Western High School. He came to Walled Lake Western from Birmingham Public Schools, where he was an assistant principal at Seaholm High School for five years. Prior to that, Hamka spent nine years with Rochester Community Schools serving as an assistant principal at Hart Middle School as well as taught history, economics and world religions at Stoney Creek High School.

“The last six years have been the best years of my professional career,” said Hamka. “I am truly grateful for the amazing relationships I have established with students, staff, and Western families.”

“Together, we have navigated challenges, celebrated successes, and forged memorable bonds that go beyond the walls of our building,” continued Hamka. “It has been inspiring to witness the dedication of our students, the unwavering support of our families, and the commitment of our staff who has nurtured excellence in every aspect of Western’s revitalizing journey.”

"Since 2018, Mr. Hamka has excelled as the principal of Walled Lake Western High School, demonstrating outstanding leadership and a deep commitment to our students and staff,” said Dr. Michael Lonze, incoming Superintendent of Schools. “His extensive experience has well-prepared him for this opportunity. I am confident that Mr. Hamka will continue to make significant contributions to our school district's success in his new role."
