Powell Middle principal named to top-level district post in Hernando

BROOKSVILLE — Powell Middle School principal Jamie Young has been named to one of the top-ranking positions in the Hernando County School District.

On Thursday, superintendent Lori Romano named Young, 45, executive director of teaching, learning and technology, a newly modified position.

The position, previously called the director of technology and information services, was expanded and updated under Romano's recent district reorganization.

Young will report directly to assistant superintendent Alan Cox and oversee several departments, including elementary and secondary programs, federal programs, technology and information services, exceptional student education and adult and technical education.

Young said she sees it as a great opportunity.

Young has worked at Powell for five years, first as an assistant principal and then as a principal. She has also been a classroom teacher, a public education officer for the Tampa Fire Department and a business owner.

The position of principal at Powell is now vacant.
