CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The assistant principal of Waynesboro Area Senior High School was hired Wednesday to become the new principal of Chambersburg Area Middle School.

Tod Kline, 46, of Fayetteville, Pa., was named by the school board to replace Timothy Bowers, who left the position to become superintendent of the Northern Tioga School District. Kline said he was hired, effective July 1, at a salary of $76,000.

"It's hard to leave Waynesboro (Pa.) because I have roots here ... but it's an opportunity I couldn't refuse," Kline said Thursday. "It's a great school with a great faculty and it's an opportunity for me to grow as a professional."

Kline has been assistant principal at Waynesboro for five years. Before that, he taught instrumental, vocal and general music at Hooverville and Mowrey elementary schools in Waynesboro for 12 years.

A native of Waynesboro, Kline graduated from the high school in 1976. He has a bachelor's degree in music from the North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, N.C., and a master's degree in school administration from Western Maryland College. Kline said he will complete the course work for his doctorate in school administration from Widener University this month.

Kline earned his Pennsylvania Instructional certificate from Gettysburg (Pa.) College and his superintendent's letter of eligibility from Shippensburg (Pa.) University.

Before becoming a teacher, Kline said he was an adjunct faculty member at Shippensburg University, Penn State University and Mercersburg (Pa.) Academy.
