Kent Kreamer named principal of N. Carroll High

January 12, 1995|By Anne Haddad | Anne Haddad,Sun Staff Writer

Kent W. Kreamer, an assistant principal at Westminster High School, was named principal at North Carroll High School when the county school board approved the promotion yesterday.

But Mr. Kreamer won't leave immediately. He will spend mornings at Westminster High and afternoons at North Carroll beginning next week and until his successor is named.

Mr. Kreamer began his career as a teacher in 1973 in Orbisonia, Pa. He came to Westminster High School in 1978 as a teacher, then became guidance counselor. He was promoted to assistant principal in 1985.

He succeeds Gregory Eckles, who was appointed this fall to be the director of curriculum and staff development.

"I really just felt I was to the point where I wanted to make a contribution the next level up, which is the principalship," Mr. Kreamer said.

"It's very fortunate that an opening happened to come up in North Carroll. They're on the cutting edge of a lot of issues," he said.

The high school was the second in the state to start a four-period day, in which students spend 90 minutes in each of four classes a day, each semester, instead of 45 minutes for seven periods all year.

"The four-mod day is just representative of the atmosphere in the community and the sense over there in embracing change," Mr. Kreamer said.

"I heard someone say North Carroll High School is probably one of the best-kept secrets in the state of Maryland. It's my goal to make sure North Carroll is no longer a secret to anybody."
