Veteran administrator named principal at Brooksville Elementary

BROOKSVILLE — Veteran Hernando County School District administrator Jill Renihan on Tuesday was named principal at Brooksville Elementary School, filling the last of the county's vacant principal positions.

Renihan, 48, comes to the job from nearby Hernando High School, where she has served as an assistant principal since 2008.

Renihan came to the district in 1990 as a teacher at Parrott Middle School and spent 13 years in the exceptional student education department. She also has served as an assistant principal at West Hernando Middle School.

At Brooksville Elementary, Renihan replaces Mary LeDoux, who was just appointed to turn around Eastside Elementary after the school earned an F grade from the state.

LeDoux, who has 19 years of administrative experience with the district, had been Brooksville Elementary's principal since January 2005.

Under her leadership, Brooksville Elementary, a Title 1 school, bolstered its reputation for strong academics, consistently earning A's and B's in the state's accountability system.

Brooksville earned a B for 2012-13, dropping from an A during a year of tougher state standards.
