South Central searching for principal
GREENWICH — With their newly appointed executive head, George R. McNemar, attending the meeting, the South Central Board of Education last night continued its search for a new high school principal.
Board members intervieded one candidate for the position last night. They had already interviewed one other man, and have names of several more they intend to contact before any decision is made.
The new principal is needed to replace Harry W. Miller, who resigned at the end of the school year. Still acting as executive head is Sewell Cameron who will become executive head at Western Reserve schools next month.
Board members accepted the resignation of Jackie Roscoe as a first grade teacher at North Fairfield Elementary. She will be teaching in the Norwalk city schools in the fall.
