Northwood, Shoal River & Riverside schools get new principals

"I'mexcited to work with the teachers from Riverside Elementary to provide the students with a safe, engaging, educational experience that will help each student meet their academic potential," Matz said in an email.

Becoming Shoal River’s principal allows Cheree Davis to shorten her commute to across her hometown of Crestview.

"She is so excited about being close to home," Jackson said. "Middle school is her first love and she is so excited to be back in that. She is a very dynamic and a smart woman."

Different viewpoint

A committee within the school district administration selected the new Crestview principals. The school district lacks a large applicant pool to select from, so the search allowed candidates from outside the district.

Jackson refrained from involvement until after the committee made its recommendations, which she took to the school board.

Bringing in new educators can offer a different point of view that can be healthy for a school, she said.
