Change is underway in the Westborough school department, with a new principal taking the reigns at the high school and the assistant superintendent vying for a new job in Milford.
John G. Smith has been named the new principal of Westborough High School by Superintendent Anne Towle, who made the announcement last week. Smith, currently the principal at Nashoba Regional High School in Bolton, will start his new position on July 1. The Shrewsbury resident replaces John Pierce, who will retire at the end of the school year after seven years as principal.
In other news, Assistant Superintendent Les Olson, also the district’s business manager, is one of eight semi-finalists for the job of Milford Superintendent. He will be interviewed next week by the Milford School Committee, who will then narrow down the field at their Feb. 15 meeting.
