On Oct. 1, Jeff Bryant was promoted from the assistant principal who oversees the Noblesville High School Freshman Campus to interim NHS principal. Stacey Swan, assistant principal at the NHS Main Campus, was then moved to the freshman campus as the interim assistant principal there. On Feb. 18, the Noblesville School Board removed the interim tags for both.
“We have been thrilled with Mr. Bryant’s performance,” Noblesville Schools Supt. Libbie Conner said.
Bryant has worked at Noblesville Schools for the past 12 years, and served as an NHS assistant principal for the past five years.
“I’m excited to continue to serve the students,” said Bryant. “(The transition) has been as seamless as it can be thanks to the staff in place, along with the administration team. I’m excited about having the opportunity to serve.”
