Longtime Severn River Middle School principal June Eyet retired at the end of December, having served Anne Arundel County schools for 17 years.
Filling her shoes in the interim is Lucinda Hudson, a former SRMS faculty member and former Broadneck High School principal. Hudson also served as interim principal at the start of the school year, while Eyet was on medical leave.
In the school's January newsletter, Hudson greeted students and parents, saying she hoped to provide a stable presence at the school.
"I hope that my presence here will help sustain the commitment to a high quality educational program that has characterized our school system, and, more specifically, SRMS," Hudson said.
