The change was announced by Rob McGill, the Chief Executive Officer of the school system, in a letter to parents and posted to the school’s website.

“I thank Ms. Willis for her service to [Maumelle Charter High School], and I wish her the best in her future endeavors,” McGill wrote and added, “I look forward to witnessing Mrs. Johnson's leadership through the next few weeks as students and teachers close out the year.”

In the letter, Johnson said her purpose in education, “is to help students realize their potential and inspire growth and change to make our world a better place for the next generation.” 

McGill said the position would be advertised and that he was, “committed to hiring the best person available equipped to move [Maumelle Charter] forward in the future.”
