LENOX, Mass. — Superintendent William Collins announced that Holly Soules has been selected as Morris Elementary School's new assistant principal and will assume her role on July 1.
Soules brings experience and a diverse background in education to the district. She has previously taught both first and third grade, served as a Physical Education instructor for elementary and high school students, and most recently held the position of Dean of Students at Herberg Elementary School.
