“Congratulations to Dr. John Werner,” Clarke County Superintendent Dr. Michael Murphy said in an email message announcing the resignation. “Late last night I was notified that the School Board of the Manassas City Public Schools had accepted the appointment of Dr. John Werner as the new Principal of Osbourn High School, ‘Home of the Eagles’.”
Murphy said that although transition is often difficult, he is excited for Werner as he looks forward to new adventures and opportunities to demonstrate his leadership and a shorter commute.
“It has been a pleasure to work with such an outstanding young leader the last three years, and we wish for him much success in the days and years to come,” Murphy said.
Murphy said that CCPS will soon post for a replacement high school principal, with an anticipated hire date of July 1, 2011. Interested persons should contact Assistant Superintendent, Rick Catlett for additional information.
