Mr. Blake Manuel

Hello! My name is Blake Manuel and I am an Assistant Principal at Columbus East High School. The 2023-2024 school year will be my 1st year at East but my 7th year as a BCSC administrator.

I am extremely excited about working with the TEAM 2025 students and families and you should always feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. You can reach me via email at or by phone at (812) 314-3837 and I will do my best to get in touch as quickly as I can.

In case you were curious, here is some more info about me!

My wife Bailey and I have lived in Columbus for the past 10 years and we absolutely love it! We enjoy walking through the Columbus Farmer's Market or riding our bikes down the People’s Trail. We also love to travel and have campfires with our friends! Our 4 kids are 6, 4, 2, and another one born this past July! We are having a blast watching them grow up and try out new things!
