At the July school board meeting, Damon Saunders was confirmed as the new principal at Dickinson High School. The appointment is a homecoming for Saunders, who graduated from Dickinson in 1996 and taught Physical Education and served as a disciplinarian at his alma mater. In between, he made a stop as an administrator in Maryland and at A.I. DuPont High School, but is excited to return home.
His predecessor, Byron Murphy, decided to move on after a decade at the helm. He will assume the role of administrator at Brandywine High School.
