Pam Hodgson was approved by the Summit Hill School District 161 board Wednesday night to become the next principal for their junior high.
Principal Pam Hodgson will be leaving Norbert Jerling Junior High School next month to become principal at Summit Hill Junior High School in Frankfort. The Summit Hill School District 161 board of education approved her hiring Wednesday, June 13. Her first day at the new school wil be July 2.
Hodgson told Frankfort Patch on Wednesday that she was impressed by the school district's plans when it comes to academic achievement and instructional improvement. She also said she was impressed with the leadership of district Supt. Barb Rains.
"I’m really looking forward to the new opportunity, and at the same time I’ll miss people at District 135, whether they are parents, students, or staff," Hodgson said Thursday. "I met wonderful people here and people I hope I’m in touch with my whole life. It’s a new opportunity and 161 is a great district, but so is District 135. I’m really going to miss it."
