Carrie Fisher, current assistant principal at Renton Junior High School, has been named as the new principal at Brown Elementary.
The decision was announced Thursday afternoon in a letter sent to families in the Huron School District by Supt. Donovan Rowe.
“Mrs. Fisher has been an educator for over 18 years. She spent 14 years as an elementary education teacher in both the general education and special education classrooms. She has also spent the last 4 years as the assistant principal at Renton Jr. High School, right here in New Boston. Her work within our district has demonstrated her passion for working with students, teachers, parents, and staff. She has shown a dedication to raising student achievement, forming positive relationships, ensuring that students have a safe and productive learning environment. She understands the unique culture within the Huron School District Community, and she is committed to ensuring that Brown Elementary is a great place for students to learn and grow,” Rowe said in the letter.
The principal job was previously awarded to an elementary principal working in a neighboring district who went through the district’s application and hiring process, but decided to back-out of the job last week after previously signing a contract with the district.
Fisher will initially work alongside an interim principal at the beginning of the school year, which starts on Sept. 3.
