TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - One long time Terre Haute educator will now oversee operations at Woodrow Wilson Middle School.
The school board Monday night approved Susan Mardis as the school's new principal.
Mardis first worked 39 years as a teacher and substitute teacher. Most recently, she's spent the eight previous years as Deming Elementary school's principal.
She says she's excited to take on the new challenge.
"I would like to build upon the great legacy that Wilson already has," said Mardis. "My top things are good discipline, fine instruction, and parental involvement. We want parents to know this is their school, too, and we want them involved with their children with great communication."
The board also named Sarah Gore as Wilson's assistant principal. She comes to Wilson from Otter Creek Middle School.
