Gulf High principal seeks Hernando job
Gulf High School principal Steve Knobl has made no secret of his desire to be a superintendent some day. So when the Hernando County school district announced it would seek another round of applicants for its vacant assistant superintendent position, Knobl decided to go for it. "It's a scenario that's intriguing," said Knobl, a 15-year veteran of the Pasco district, who took over the Gulf High job a year ago. "By no means does applying mean I'm going to get the job. … It is just something to explore." Knobl, who ran Bayonet Point Middle School for two years before his assignment to Gulf High, is completing his doctorate in education in the fall.
