Pasco makes plans for two new principals



Candidates for Pasco's two principal vacancies will get to make their cases Monday, when the superintendent and her key staff will interview the hopefuls in advance of Tuesday's School Board meeting.

Just two candidates have applied for each post. They are:

Zephyrhills High -- Steve Van Gorden, currently principal of Hudson Middle; and Jennifer Crosby, currently assistant principal of Wesley Chapel High.

Sunray Elementary -- Judith Cosh, currently assistant principal of Chasco Elementary; and Lee Anne Yerkey, currently assistant principal of Richey Elementary.

Zephyrhills is being run by an assistant principal after Gerri Painter's abrupt resignation this month. Sunray needs a leader because Yvonne Reins is being reassigned to Cox Elementary.

Assistant superintendent Jim Davis told the Gradebook the staff could have its recommendation to the School Board ready for Tuesday, depending on how the conversations go.
