Finally today, Clinton High School athletic director and assistant principal Dan Jenkins has been named principal at Norwood Middle School. Jenkins will be replaced as AD and assistant principal by Dragon baseball coach Brad Collette. With his promotion, Collette will have to step down as the coach of the Diamond Dragons, which means one of his first duties will likely be to hire his replacement. Congratulations to both men.
