The Pickerington Board of Education this week continued to fill administrative positions in preparation for the 2008-09 school year.

At the board's regular meeting Monday night, Cynthia Goldhaber was named the new principal of Pickerington High School North.

Goldhaber has a master's degree from The Ohio State University and has been assistant principal at Hilliard Davidson High School. She will earn $91,691 in her first year with the district.

Her appointment is among the most recent in a series of administrative changes the board has made to compensate for a spate of retirements this year.

Goldhaber will succeed Mike Smith at the PHS North.

Smith has been with the district for more than 16 years. He will become the district's new director of student services, where he will earn $110,273. He was assistant principal and principal at what was Pickerington High School and in 2003, he opened Pickerington High School North as principal.

Smith was moved into his new role to fill a vacancy created by the retirement of George Vickroy, who had been with the district for more than 14 years and also served as an elementary principal in two schools.

Also on Monday, the board named two new junior high school principals.

Kiya Hunt was appointed the new principal at Lakeview Junior High School. She has a master's degree from Marian College and will relocate to central Ohio from Appleton, Wis., where she has been associate principal of activities at Appleton West High School since 2005.

Hunt will earn $79,732 a year and will fill a vacancy created when former Lakeview principal Heather Hedgepeth was named principal at Diley Middle School.

Susan Caudill was named principal at Ridgeview Junior High School. She has a master's degree from Ashland University and was most recently assistant principal of pupil personnel at Westland High School for South-Western City Schools.

Caudill will earn $79,732 a year and will fill a vacancy created when Ruth Stickel was named principal at Fairfield Elementary School.
