Changes at the top
Boxes are being packed and moving will get underway once the 2017-18 school year ends in Jennings County next week as several administrative changes are on the horizon for the Jennings County School Corp.

Starting with the Jennings County Middle School, Jeanie Koelmel requested the school board approve her transferring from the Special Programs Director position to the principal role at JCMS.

Mike Green will be transferring from the Jennings County High School assistant principal position to the JCMS assistant principal position. Green will be replacing Stephanie Eaton who is moving to Hayden Elementary School as an academic coach.

Two assistant principals were hired for JCHS for 2018-19 following the move by Green and the promotion of Dustin Roller to the school's principal. Stephanie Ebbing was hired on a 215-day contract at $74,000 a year and Taryn Kent will exit as a classroom teacher to become an assistant principal at $71,000 a year with a 215-day contract.

Nick Hill will leave the JCMS principal spot to become the new principal at the North Vernon Elementary School. Cur­rent NVE principal Nicole Johnson will move to the principal's job at Scipio Elementary School following the retirement of current principal Donna Eaton at the end of this school year.

Editor's Notebook
Ho hum elections? Never!

Primary elections during midterm election years are generally somewhat low key. This spring's electoral process in Jennings County fit that rule, I suppose, but I contend it was not a ho-hum affair. Elections never are.

• Cap and gown time for NV grandmother
• As engaged as ever
• Divine intervention at work
