New principals to greet students


Susan Gunnell - Superintendent, Huber Heights City Schools



Each summer, personnel changes occur throughout our school district as individuals retire, resign, or accept jobs in other school districts. This summer is no different. As the 2016 – 2017 school year begins, staff, students, parents, and community members will see quite a new faces walking the halls of the Huber Heights City Schools.

At the building level, Mr. Jeffrey Berk is the new principal at Wayne High School. Mr. Berk is a familiar face to many in Huber Heights. He is a Wayne High School graduate and upon graduation from college, Jeff returned in 2005 to Wayne High School as an intervention specialist. In 2010, Mr. Berk moved to the administrative offices as a special education supervisor. He returned to Wayne High School in 2013 to serve as an assistant principal.

Mr. Thomas (T.D.) Evans is the new assistant principal at Wayne High School. Mr. Evans comes to Huber Heights from Urbana City Schools where he served as the high school media / technology teacher and the district video facilitator. Mr. Evans is a 2000 graduate from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and Mass Communications. He received a Master’s Degree in Teacher Leadership from Wright State University in 2011 and his principal certification in 2014, also from Wright State University.

With the reassignment of Mrs. Rebecca Molfenter to Valley Forge Elementary, Rushmore Elementary will welcome a new building principal. Mrs. Sarah Easterling is the new principal at Rushmore. Mrs. Easterling is a 2002 graduate of Wright State University and earned a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration in 2012 from the University of Scranton. Sarah began her career in education in Huber Heights in 2003 as a kindergarten teacher. Over the past 13 years she has remained with the Huber Heights City Schools and served as a Title I teacher, a first grade teacher, and an instructional coach.

I am looking forward to working with our three new building administrators. I know the talents and experiences they bring to their new positions will benefit the staff, students, and community of the Huber Heights City Schools. As always, if you have questions about our schools, please contact me at the Administrative Offices (237-6300) or through e-mail at Susan.Gunnell@huberheightscityschools.org.
