A familiar face will be taking over the reins of the Palmyra Elementary School following action by the R-I Board of Education last Thursday evening during a special meeting.
Bridgette Augspurg has been hired as the elementary school principal for the 2020-21 school year. She has been the assistant principal at PES for five years.
She takes over from Lora Hillman, who resigned from the principal position to return to teaching.
Augspurg has several years of experience in education.
