The Henry County School Board approved the Superintendent Sandy Strayer’s recommendation to fill three administrative positions at its June 9 meeting.
Krystle Churchill will be assistant principal at Magna Vista High School. Churchill has served students in Chesterfield County as an ESL teacher and dean of students.
“I am honored to be joining the administrative team at Magna Vista High School. I am thrilled to be back home and serving our Warrior community in this new role. I am looking forward to meeting the faculty, our students, parents, and families.”
Charles White will be director of pupil transportation. White has served students in Franklin County as a teacher and bus driver.
“I look forward to the opportunity to work with this group of great individuals to add to the growth of Henry County Public Schools.”
Duane Whittaker will be principal at Magna Vista High School. Whittaker, who currently serves as the supervisor of Regional Alternative Program, has served students as an administrator in Henry County and in North Carolina since 1998.
“I am honored to return to Magna Vista to serve the Warrior community as principal. There are a countless number of my family that have an educational foundation that began at Magna Vista High School. That foundation has allowed them to continue to grow educationally within and beyond the borders of our county,” he said.
“The students at Magna Vista are only limited by the biggest dreams or goals they set for themselves. I look forward to collaborating with the staff, families, and members of our community who work so tirelessly to offer our students the encouragement and support they need to be their very best. Together, we will continue to propel each of our learners to greatness. I welcome the opportunity to talk with all stakeholders about their specific child and any concerns they may have.” Whittaker added.
The appointments were approved after the board reconvened from closed session.
“I am pleased to have these leaders join our team as we continue to offer our students the encouragement and support they need to be their very best,” said Strayer.
