New Elementary principal hired in Muncy
MUNCY – A new principal, Frank Jankowski, was recently hired at Muncy School District to begin this July at Myers Elementary School.
Jankowski, 27, of Berwick, takes over his new administrative position starting July 1. However, he is not new to the district as he has been a secondary social studies teacher at the Muncy Junior and Senior High School for the past five years.
At last week’s meeting, the school board approved to hire Jankowski at an annual salary of $65,000.
Jankowski will be replacing William “Bill” Ramsey, who will be leaving after serving 36 years in the educational field. Ramsey served nine years as a teacher at Selinsgrove and 27 years in Muncy, shuffling between principal duties at the Ward L. Myers Elementary School and junior-senior high school campus.
“I’m excited about the position of leadership,” said Jankowski, who spent his high school years in Berwick, graduating from that high school in 2003. He holds an undergraduate degree from Villanova University, where he played Division I football and baseball for the Wildcats and earned a master’s degree and completed educational requirements to become a school principal from Wilkes University.
Jankowski said he looks forward to the challenge of working with students, educators and parents.
He said he has spent part of his internship with Ramsey, and he is looking forward to the next six months working with the veteran administrator. The board and administration, including Superintendent Dr. Portia Brandt, welcomed Jankowski with a round of applause.
School board director Danielle Baum was absent.
