CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. — Students at Wildwood Middle, Shipley Elementary and Jefferson High schools will find new administrators in their buildings when they return to class Tuesday for the 2012-13 school year.
Heather Boucher takes the reins at Shipley Elementary School on U.S. 340 East near Harpers Ferry, W.Va.
She replaces Mark Osbourn, who retired after his election in May to the Jefferson County Board of Education.
Patricia Brockway will be on board at Wildwood Middle School across from Jefferson High School on Flowing Springs Road. She succeeds the retiring Paul Brown in that school’s top administrative slot.
Darrius Fenton, most recently a collaborative team leader in the Fairfax County, Va., school district, was hired as an assistant principal at Jefferson High School.
Boucher began her career at Shipley Elementary in 2004 teaching kindergarten. In 2010, she began teaching fourth grade. Last year, she taught math and reading, and now she’s principal of the school she’s been working in for eight years.
