New principal named for Pasco's Lake Myrtle Elementary School



Veteran Pasco County educator Megan Hermansen has been appointed to lead Lake Myrtle Elementary School in Land O'Lakes. The announcement went to district staff late Friday.

Hermansen, who started the year as assistant principal at Deer Park Elementary, would replace Jessica Clements, who abruptly resigned about a month into the school year. The School Board still must confirm the promotion.

Hermansen, 41, started working in the district in 1998. She also has worked as an assistant principal at Oakstead Elementary, and has applied for principal posts off and on over the past six years.

Her husband also is an administrator in Pasco County schools.
