Clay Middle School announces new principal


Last Monday at the Carmel Clay School Board meeting, Todd Crosby was unanimously approved as the successor to Clay Middle School Principal Gary Huddleston, according to a press release. Huddleston is retiring at the end of June.

Crosby is coming from a position as the director of APEX, “a project-based small learning community,” and as the assistant principal of the “Blue House” at Decatur Middle School in MSD Decatur Township.

Teachers from the school gave input into the selection by way of surveying applications, interviewing candidates and giving opinions to the board before the final decision was made.

Prior to his position at DMS, Crosby was the principal of Triton Central Middle School in Fairland. He has also worked as a social studies teacher in both Indiana and Illinois.

He holds a master’s degree in educational leadership from Aurora University and a bachelor’s degree from Ball State University.
