Pasco River Ridge Middle School gets new principal

Shifts continue in the leadership of Pasco County schools, with the appointment of Sunlake High assistant principal Marcy Maxwell to run River Ridge Middle.

Maxwell replaces Jason Joens, who moves over to the principalship of Gulf Middle School. That slot came open with the retirement of Stan Trapp.

A teacher since 2003, Maxwell has taught at Wesley Chapel High, where she also was an assistant principal, a job she also held at Land O'Lakes High and Sunlake. She has not worked in a middle school before, but said she was "excited" at the prospect.

Her transfer opens a position at Sunlake High, which will be filled by Weightman Middle assistant principal Tracey Bruno.
