A new prin­ci­pal and as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal will head Bow­man High School this up­com­ing school year, join­ing three other newly ap­pointed as­sis­tant prin­ci­pals who will soon make their way to var­i­ous schools in the Santa Clarita Val­ley.

The gov­ern­ing board of the Wil­liam S. Hart Union High School Dis­trict an­nounced the ap­point­ments of Eran Zeevi and Nina Zamora as prin­ci­pal and as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal of Bow­man High, re­spec­tively, at Wed­nes­day’s dis­trict meet­ing.

Though it wasn’t on the agenda, board Pres­i­dent Steve Stur­geon also an­nounced dur­ing open ses­sion that Brandi Davis would join Javier Pena as an as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal at La Mesa Ju­nior High School, while Wendi John­ston will fill the same po­si­tion at Golden Val­ley High School.

The group of prospec­tive prin­ci­pals were on hand with their fam­i­lies to in­tro­duce them­selves and share their ex­cite­ment with oth­ers in at­ten­dance.

“Ini­tially, there were 90 ap­pli­ca­tions re­ceived from in­side and out­side the dis­trict for the open po­si­tions,” Stur­geon said. “They were reviewed and in­ter­viewed be­fore be­ing re­duced to seven.”

Two more in­ter­views oc­curred with the re­view panel com­prised of dis­trict staff, site prin­ci­pals and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the teacher’s union, Stur­geon said. “The ad­min­is­tra­tors of the school then made their fi­nal choices and, to­gether, picked the schools that would be most ap­pro­pri­ate for the can­di­dates.”

Af­ter re­ceiv­ing ap­proval from the board, Stur­geon said the ad­min­is­tra­tors are set to as­sume their po­si­tions ef­fec­tive July 1.
