The Pulaski County Special School District has hired Nick Farr as the new principal at Maumelle High School and Staisey Hodge as the new principal at Oak Grove Elementary.
Farr, who has a doctorate, was previously the principal at Marianna, where he spent two years. Before that he was an assistant principal in the Jacksonville school district.
He’s also worked for the Little Rock and Pulaski County school districts in roles ranging from coaching football and girls athletics to choir and orchestra.
If the name seems familiar to some, it might be because Farr, above, is also a working performer and actor and starred as TJ in the Wildwood Center for the Arts production of Sister Act last year.
Hodge, above, will start her 34 year at PCSSD this August as the Oak Grove principal.
Most recently she was the assistant principal at William Jefferson Clinton Elementary in Sherwood and before that as the assistant principal at Chenal Elementary.
She’s also been a special education teacher, among many other roles over her long career.
We look forward to an exciting new school year with these administrators leading schools for the 2023-2024 year. School resumes on August 14, 2023.
In other leadership changes, Teresa Moka will serve as principal at Mills High School after having previously served there as assistant principal.
Neely Claassen was promoted from vice principal at Chenal Elementary to be the new principal at DRIVEN Virtual Academy, where she led the kindergarten through fifth grade classes.
Three other interim principals were promoted for the coming school year as well.
College Station Elementary - Anjelica Evans
Harris Elementary - Erikka Johnson
Sylvan Hills Elementary - Britney Hickman
