CEN­TRE­VILLE — The in­terim su­per­in­ten­dent of Queen Anne’s County Pub­lic Schools is mak­ing lead­er­ship changes at mid-year to fill va­can­cies cre­ated by res­ig­na­tions and early re­tire­ments at Queen Anne’s County High School.

In a Tues­day, Feb. 14, post­ing on the school district’s web­site, Gre­gory Pilewski an­nounced that Amy Hu­dock, prin­ci­pal at Cen­tre­ville Mid­dle School, would suc­ceed An­gela Holocker at QACHS.

“Mrs. Hu­dock brings a wealth of knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence as a sec­on­dar y school ad­min­is­tra­tor and is also an ac­tive mem­ber of the Queen Anne’s County High School (QACHS) com­mu­nity. In fact, Amy has worked with many of the stu­dents cur­rently at­tend­ing QACHS and their fam­i­lies. She re­ally knows and un­der­stands the com­mu­nity and will make a great fit,” Pilewski wrote.

Holocker sub­mit­ted a let­ter of res­ig­na­tion last week and said her last day would be Feb. 28. As­sis­tant Prin­ci­pal Deb­bie Lawrence and school coun­selor Con­nie Dean re­tired prior to Holocker’s res­ig­na­tion.

Pilewski said Hu­dock’s term as the high school’s prin­ci­pal is ef­fec­tive Feb. 21.

Hu­dock, who holds a mas­ter’s de­gree in school ad­min­is­tra­tion, has been the prin­ci­pal at Cen­tre­ville Mid­dle School since 2012.

She ar­rived in Queen Anne’s County in 1992 as an English/lan­guage arts and spe­cial ed­u­ca­tion teacher at Cen­tre­ville Mid­dle School. She was pro­moted to in­struc­tional spe­cial­ist in 2008, pro­vid­ing sup­port, pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment and in­struc­tional guid­ance coun­ty­wide. In Jan­uary 2011, she was as­signed to An­chor Points Academy as the pro­gram di­rec­tor.

Hu­dock and her hus­band Ken, a for­mer prin­ci­pal at Wor­ton El­e­men­tary School in Kent County, live in Church Hill. They have five chil­dren and three grand­chil­dren. Their three old­est chil­dren, Cody (’03), Tyler (’04) and Ryne (’05), are QACHS grad­u­ates and each served in the United States Coast Guard. Cody is a pilot for Dy­namic Avi­a­tion, Tyler is a spe­cial in­ves­ti­ga­tor un­der the Of­fice of the In­spec­tor Gen­eral with the U.S. Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion, and Ryne is a fire pro­tec­tion en­gi­neer liv­ing in Seoul, Korea. Their youngest chil­dren, Ma­son, a se­nior, and Makenzy, a sopho­more, cur­rently at­tend QACHS. Ma­son will en­ter the Coast Guard this Au­gust.

To re­place Hu­dock at CMS, Sue Stein has been named act­ing prin­ci­pal through the end of June.

Stein will start her job March 1, ac­cord­ing to the news re­lease. She and her hus­band Kenny re­side in Cen­tre­ville.

“Mrs. Stein is a highly ex­pe­ri­enced school ad­min­is­tra­tor that knows our school sys­tem very well. As a res­i­dent, she re­ally un­der­stands our com­mu­nity and we are de­lighted to have Sue come back to join our team. Sue is a true as­set that will con­tinue to build on the suc­cess­ful work that Mrs. Hu­dock and her team are cur­rently per­form­ing at Cen­tre­ville Mid­dle School,” Pilewski wrote.

Stein was for­merly the prin­ci­pal at Cen­tre­ville Mid­dle School (2002-08) and Bay­side El­e­men­tary School (19992002); she re­tired in 2008 af­ter 21 years in the school sys­tem.

Ac­cord­ing to the Johns Hop­kins School of Ed­u­ca­tion web­site, Stein is an in­struc­tor in its ad­min­is­tra­tion and su­per­vi­sion cer­tifi­cate pro­gram.
