Oak Ridge High School Principal Martin McDonald announced in a Facebook post on Tuesday that he is leaving his job at ORHS and starting a new job at Greeneville High School.
The post didn’t say why McDonald is leaving ORHS or specifically say when he is leaving.
Oak Ridge Today was not able to immediately reach McDonald for comment through a Facebook message on Tuesday night.
“It is with a heavy heart that I announce that I am stepping down as the principal of Oak Ridge High School in order to start a new adventure as the principal of Greeneville High School,” McDonald said in his social media post. “I want to thank all of Wildcat Nation for the love and support they have extended to my family and I over the last six years. It has been my greatest pleasure to serve as principal of Oak Ridge High School. The staff and students are truly world class. Our community is one that values and supports high quality public education like none other. I want to thank Dr. Bruce Borchers for the opportunity to learn and grow in such a wonderful district. I have enjoyed making many lasting friendships here in Oak Ridge that I know will last a lifetime. I will continue to watch the continued success of Oak Ridge High School from further up the road in East Tennessee. I often say once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat. Thank you to everyone who has helped play role in my success. Roll, Wildcats,Roll!”
More information will be added as it becomes available.
