Chester W. Taylor Elementary principal to retire

ZEPHYRHILLS — Yet another Pasco County school is looking for a new principal to start the 2010-11 academic year.

Eva Hunsberger, who has led Chester W. Taylor Elementary School since 2005, filed surprise retirement papers at the end of July. Her official last day is Aug. 13.

"I have had wonderful opportunities here in Pasco County," Hunsberger said. "There comes a time when somebody wants to pursue other interests."

She wouldn't reveal her plans, but said she was excited to move on and also certain that the school would thrive under a new principal.

Two candidates have applied for the job. They are Julie Marks, Quail Hollow Elementary assistant principal, and Shirley Ray, Seven Oaks Elementary assistant principal.

Superintendent Heather Fiorentino and her team are scheduled to conduct interviews on Monday. The Irvin Education Center also remains without a principal.

Correction

The only two people who applied for the principal job at Chester Taylor Elementary School were Julie Marks and Shirley Ray. A longer list of applicants appeared in a story Aug. 6 because the Pasco County school district mistakenly provided a list of everyone in its principal applicant pool, most of whom had not applied for this specific opening.
