Principal appointed at Sandymount

April 21, 1994

The Carroll County Board of Education yesterday appointed Linda K. Mills principal of Sandymount School.

Ms. Mills has been acting principal at the school on Old Westminster Pike since September. She replaces Helen Metz, who is retiring.

"We are celebrating at Sandymount," said Jeanne Fink, school secretary. "I have had two pages of congratulatory calls, and the staff is elated."

The PTA encouraged parents to write letters supporting Ms. Mills to the Board of Education, Ms. Fink said.

"Ms. Mills has made friends not only with the staff but with many parents," she said.

Ms. Mills, a graduate of Bloomsburg State College in Pennsylvania, has a master's degree in education and did additional graduate study at Western Maryland College.

The Westminster resident has spent 25 years in education, all but one in Carroll County. She has taught at Uniontown, Taneytown and Westminster elementary schools and was assistant principal at Robert Moton for eight years.
