Assistant principal to take reins at Sherborn elementary

Posted by Martin Finucane March 16, 2007 02:52 PM


The assistant principal of Pine Hill Elementary School, Veronica Kenney, will take over as interim principal for the 2008-2009 school year, according to school officials.

Principal David Nihill plans to retire after the 2007-2008 school year. However, Sherborn School Committee members said at a recent meeting they don’t think they’ll have enough time to hire a permanent replacement immediately.

This is because the committee will be busy helping in the search to replace outgoing Dover-Sherborn Regional School District Superintendent Perry Davis, committee members said.

During the meeting, the committee approved allowing Davis to hire Kenney as the interim principal for 2008-2009. Kenney has said she will only take the job so long as she isn’t excluded from applying for the permanent position, according to Davis.
