CRESTVIEW — With the new school year’s start, Northwood and Riverside Elementary Schools and Shoal River Middle School will have new principals.

Two of the principals will transfer to Crestview from out of state, while current Edwins Elementary School Principal Cheree Davis will move to Shoal River.

Okaloosa County School District Superintendant Mary Beth Jackson said she is "very excited" about the potential the new principals bring to Crestview schools.

At the school year’s end, teachers and principals throughout the district often request new assignments for various reasons. "It starts a domino effect," Jackson said.

Shoal River principal Paul Whiddon requested to return to his previous assignment at Ruckel Middle School in Niceville, Jackson said.

Marline Van Dyke, current Riverside principal, requested to be transferred to a school closer to her south county home, Jackson said.

Northwood Elementary principal Jacqueline Craig requested a transfer as principal or an assistant principal to another Crestview elementary school, Jackson said.
