Administrators appointed at three Pasco County schools


Administrators appointed at Three schools

After months of wearing the interim title next to his name, Garry Walthall officially can call himself Sunlake High School principal. "Garry has developed a good rapport with the students, staff and community there," assistant superintendent Jim Davis said. "We feel confident he can continue to move that school." Walthall became the school's temporary leader this spring after Angie Stone left to run Fivay High, which opens in Hudson in the fall. Superintendent Heather Fiorentino said she wanted to assess leadership positions throughout the county before naming a permanent principal for Sunlake. One of those was the principal's job at Moore-Mickens Education Center, where longtime leader Steve Cox is retiring this fall. As part of the management moves, Fiorentino also named Rick Saylor, principal of the Irvin Education Center, to take over Moore-Mickens, effective Oct. 1. She also named Hilda Martin, assistant principal at Deer Park Elementary, to become principal at Chasco Elementary. Martin would replace Dolly Gauvey, who unexpectedly took a leave of absence to tend to family matters. The School Board is scheduled to consider approval of the appointments on July 6.


Schools offer free meals this summer

School's out, summer is here — but the cafeteria is still open for many Pasco County students who need free meals. The District School Board of Pasco County's Food and Nutrition Services will participate in the Summer Food Service Program during June, July and August at designated sites throughout the county. Sponsored sites are located in areas where at least 50 percent of the children qualify for free or reduced-price meals during the school year. For information about the Food Service Program or the location of participating sites, call (813) 794-2439 or visit


Pancake breakfast is yours for free

The Volunteer Way, IHOP and the Knights of Columbus will hold the next free pancake breakfast from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 5850 K of C Drive (behind the Honda dealer on U.S. 19 and Ridge Road). This month's event will include Fourth of July-themed crafts for the kids, as well as information and applications for Florida Kid Care, the state's low-cost health insurance for children under 19, and information about other community resources. Everyone is welcome, including families in need and those who would like to help them. There is no cost; any donations received will buy food for the Volunteer Way food pantry. For information call (727) 815-0433 or visit
