The new year brings new changes, especially for our campus. Very recently, Justin Oxley received a promotion and left his position as Principal of Churchill High School. As a result, Principal Bloomer took his place. Bloomer isn’t exactly new to our campus though. Before becoming Churchill’s Principal, he was the principal at Bradley, and even before that he was an AP at Churchill. Many of the students at Churchill now remember him from when they attended Bradley, so in that way, there is already a sense of familiarity, which is great when changes like this occur.
Additionally, Dr. Brian G. Gottardy is retiring from his position as Superintendent of NEISD. He has served as Superintendent for eight years now, and he has certainly left a lasting impact on NEISD as a whole. When Gottardy retires on June 30 of this year, NEISD will start to look for a replacement.
This year, though it just started, has proven to bring so many changes to our campus and our school district as a whole. Changes can be scary sometimes. They’re different, unexpected, and often make us feel uncertain about the future. With that said, changes are necessary and most of the time, extremely beneficial. As Winston Churchill himself would say, “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.”
