Harris named first female head principal at Choctaw High School
By Ryan Horton
The Choctaw-Nicoma Park Board of Education approved Jackie Harris as the next head principal for Choctaw High School.
The decision came from the Choctaw-Nicoma Park School Board at last Monday’s meeting.
Harris is a CHS graduate from the class of 1990, and she has been a member of the CNP teaching/administrative teams since 1997. Jackie has a strong passion for the CNP community. Her leadership is built around forming positive relationships and always basing decisions on what is best for students.
Her hiring marks a historic milestone as she will be the first female at the helm of Choctaw High School.
Also approved at last week’s boar meeting was the hiring of Amber Balderrama.
Balderrama has been named James Griffith Intermediate School’s next principal.
Balderrama has five years’ experience as a head principal in Moore at Red Oak Elementary. She also has a total of six years’ experience as assistant principal in Moore at both Broadmoore and Wayland Bonds Elementary. Amber comes highly recommended by Moore’s central office personnel, principals and teachers.
