Board names Andrews, Rambach

The W.S. Neal school system is getting two new additions.

Last week, the Escambia County School Board of Education officially named Dr. Laura Leigh Rambach and Eric Andrews to principal positions at W.S. Neal Middle School and WSN Elementary School, respectively.

Dr. Rambach has worked the previous year in the county school system in federal programs and as a testing coordinator.

“I didn’t expect her to try to seek out the position of principal, but she did,” said county superintendent John Knott.

“(Dr. Rambach) very much tried to pursue the position,” he said. “We, the board, name her as our new W.S. Neal Middle School principal. We look forward to all the good things she is going to do.”

Andrews, has served as assistant principal at Escambia County High School for the past two years. Andrews also has experience as a counselor and teacher.

“We know (Andrews) is going to do great things,” Knott said.

“We look forward to his success this year.”

Both positions will be effective July 1.

In other personnel news, the board also approved:

• the resignation of Colton Hammonds, HVAC/Electrician Specialist of the Brewton Maintenance Department, effective June 30;

• transfering Memory Rollin, assistant principal of Flomaton High School to teacher, FHS, effective Aug. 5 (replacing Justin Monk); and,

• transferring Melanie Crawford, secretary and bookkeeper, Flomaton Elementary School, to teacher aide, FES, effective Aug. 5 (replacing Sarah Ward).
