New Goodrich Middle School principal named

By David Fleet
Goodrich — On Monday night the school board of trustees voted 6-0 to hire Katrina Mitchell as the new Goodrich Middle School Principal. Trustee Ashley Herriman was absent with notice.
“We posted the position and received 41 applications,” said Wayne Wright, district superintendent. “The candidate we chose pulled herself well ahead of the other candidate. We have an outstanding candidate for this job.”
Mitchell was principal at Edgerton and Lacure Elementary in Clio for 11 years. Before becoming a principal, for nine years she was a teacher at multiple grade levels in the South Lyon School District.
“I’m very excited to be joining such a dynamic district,” said Mitchell. “And excited to get started.”
Katrina and husband have four boys in the Goodrich District, Brayden, seventh grade; Easton, fourth; Ashton, third grade and Casen kindergarten.
“My job as a teacher, and now as a principal, is to advocate for children,” she said. “I recognize the importance of a strong home-school connection and believe by working together, we can ensure your child’s academic, social, and emotional needs are met.”
