Danville Middle School assistant principal accepts Millville job

DANVILLE – Middle school assistant principal Ed Sanders has accepted a job as principal of Millville Elementary, leading the district to begin interviewing for his successor.

His last official day at Danville Middle School is Jan. 17, but he plans to use some accumulated time off earlier in the week.

“I have very mixed emotions about leaving. Danville’s been a great place. We’ve been through floods, a lot of ups and downs and we’ve been able to rise above it, literally, and provide a high-quality education to the students of Danville,” Sanders said.

Sanders joined the district as Danville Middle School’s assistant principal six years ago. Sanders is proud of the high performance rating of the school, which is currently ranked 16th best out of all middle schools in the state. To accomplish that following the flooding of the school in September 2011 “is a testament to our teachers and students and our administration,” he said. “It’s been a real blessing for me to be able to be part of that.”

The approximately 500 students of the Danville Middle School were relocated to other classrooms within the district following the flood, brought on by Tropical Storm Lee. The middle school was reconstructed over the next two years, with classes starting in the building again at the start of this school year.

His resignation was accepted by the school board at its Jan. 14 meeting.
