Gaston hires new principal


Susan McKenzie will replace Mike Durbin at junior-senior high school

The Gaston School Board has named Susy McKenzie as principal of Gaston Junior-Senior High School beginning with the 2013-14 school year.

McKenzie is currently the principal of Glennallen School, a K-12 school of about 280 students in the Copper River School District northeast of Anchorage, Alaska. She has held that position for three years.

David Beasley, superintendent of the Gaston district, said McKenzie’s strengths in special education, reading instruction and knowledge of the new Common Core Curriculum Standards will be an asset for Gaston schools.

McKenzie replaces Mike Durbin, who is retiring at the end of the school year.
