NORWICH – Norwich Middle School Principal Lisa Schuchman will assume a new role next year, one which will involve oversight of the district’s entire middle and high school campus.
“Mrs. Schuchman brings energy, enthusiasm and a great wealth of knowledge and familiarity with Norwich students and staff,” Superintendent Gerard O’Sullivan said yesterday, as he announced that Schuchman had been selected to assume principal position at Norwich High School.
The position has been filled on an interim basis by Dr. Bob Cleveland for the last two years. After an unsuccessful search for a permanent building administrator last year, the district renewed their efforts this past December. According to O’Sullivan, Schuchman was one of three candidates to be considered for the position. A fourth withdrew from the process shortly before interviews were conducted.
“I am very thankful to all of those who helped in the selection process,” the superintendent said, explaining that approximately 50 students, administrators, faculty, staff and community members volunteered their time to be a part of the process.
