Board Approves Principals for Mill Creek & Portal Elementary Schools

Bulloch County Schools LogoThe Board of Education approved Superintendent Charles Wilson's personnel recommendations on March 9, at its scheduled regular session. The recommendations included Jennifer Wade being named principal of Mill Creek Elementary and Dr. Laurie Mascolo as principal of Portal Elementary. The two administrators have served as interim principals since the school year began. 


The school system posted the two positions in February and conducted a search which resulted in five candidates in addition to Wade and Mascolo.  Three of the five interviewed for both positions.


"These ladies courageously and dutifully stepped up last year to serve as interim principal for their schools during uncertain and last-minute conditions," Superintendent Charles Wilson said.  "They led with the heart and values of our district in the face of those conditions. We are very proud of them and to have them as part of our leadership team."


Wilson appointed Wade as interim principal of MCES in July 2016, when he transferred the school’s former principal, Patrick Hill to Portal Middle High School after Dr. Karen Doty retired. He appointed Mascolo as interim principal at PES in August 2016, after the resignation of Paul Hudson. Wade and Mascolo had each previously served the district as assistant principals prior to their interim appointments.
