Youngstown school board fills last 2 principal posts

YOUNGSTOWN — Principals are now in place at all the city schools.

The school board chose an educator from Arkansas and one from Cleveland to lead Paul C. Bunn Elementary and Chaney High schools, respectively. Substitute principals had been filling in those positions since the beginning of the school year.

The votes came at a school board meeting tonight.

Erik Thorson, who has served as a principal in Cleveland schools, was named Chaney principal by a unanimous board vote. The annual pay for the job is $81,683, but because he is starting after the beginnng of the school year, Thorson will earn $70,120 this year.

The board, in a 5-2 vote, selected Artemus D. Scissum, an educator from Arkansas, as principal at Bunn. The annual rate for the job is $65,237, but since Scissum is starting after the beginning of the school year, he’ll earn $57,330 this year.
