With a new year, comes new school leaders. Most recently Roanoke County schools officials tapped a new Penn Forest Elementary School principal and a new assistant at Hidden Valley Middle School.
Two of the area’s largest high schools have new principals. Salem High School principal Scott Habeeb takes over for longtime leader John Hall, who retired earlier this year. The retirement of Patrick Henry High School principal Connie Ratcliffe also means a new leader at P.H. Former assistant principal Joe Jablonski has taken the reins.
– Debbie Carroll, who has taken over at West Salem Elementary School.
– Bill Birdlebough is acting principal at Stonewall Jackson Middle.
– In Roanoke County, Rebecca Eastwood is now the system’s director of human resources.
– Former Penn Forest Elementary School Principal Linda Wright took over Eastwood’s old post and is now the system’s director of elementary instruction and technology.
