Pasco's Hudson Middle School to get new principal

Just days after putting Terry Holback on his reappointments list as principal of Hudson Middle School, Pasco schools superintendent Kurt Browning has decided to go a different direction.

Browning on Thursday announced that he would remove Holback as principal, and reassign her to an assistant principal post at Seven Springs Middle. He made his move as several Hudson Middle teachers sent several emails criticizing Holback, who had been under fire from the faculty since she took over the school.

The superintendent defended Holback in email responses to teachers.

Even so, district spokeswoman Linda Cobbe said, "The superintendent wanted a change in leadership at Hudson Middle School."

The change takes effect July 1. The Hudson principalship has not been filled and will be advertised.
