The Durant ISD Board of Education held a special meeting at noon Wednesday in which the new Washington Irving Elementary School Principal was announced.
The position went to current WI Assistant Principal Lisa Whitley. Whitley was informed of her new position just moments after the meeting, but was unable to comment as she was assisting in a school assembly.
“We’re excited about what she can bring to the job. She has been assistant principal there this year,” said Superintendent
Meredith said Whitley has many years of teaching experience at multiple levels.
