We've got new principals for Daniels Middle School and Swift Creek Elementary School.
The school board just approved Elizabeth Battle as the new principal of Daniels Middle School. She replaces Stephen Mares, who is now principal of Broughton High.
Battle has been an assistant principal at Sanderson High since 2004. Here's an interesting tidbit. She's a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
The new principal at Swift Creek Elementary will be very familiar. The board is promoting John R. Umstead Jr., who has been the school's assistant principal since 2000.
Umstead replaces James Argent, who is now principal of Lake Myra Elementary.
The board also officially extended Diane Payne's contract as Leesvllle Road High's interim principal to March 27. That's supposed to help ease the transition at Ligon Middle, where Scott Lyons will leave to take over Leesville.
No one has been named yet to replace Lyons at Ligon.
