Interim Superintendent Dr. Hiersche announced today the appointment of Ms. Millie Katzman as Interim Principal for Center School. Ms. Katzman will begin work in Hopkinton in mid-January, and will work with departing principal, Dr. Chris Kennedy, to ensure a smooth and comfortable transition for staff and students.

Ms. Katzman is a retired administrator from the Brookline School District. While in Brookline, she worked from 1998-2011 as Principal of the Heath School, a K-8 school, and served on the Heath School Building Committee for a school building addition. Prior to her time in Brookline, she was the Vice Principal at Kennedy Middle School in Natick, and started her career as a Foreign Language and Social Studies teacher. She holds a Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Lesley University.

"She is an exceptionally well-qualified elementary school principal," said Director of Human Resources Kim Pulnik.

Center School parents can expect an upcoming invitation to meet and get acquainted with Ms. Katzman in the near future.

Dr. Kennedy’s last day as Center School Principal is expected to be January 18th.

"We thank him for all he’s done for the staff and students of Center School, and wish him well as he begins the next phase of his career," said Pulnik.
