We saw this note from Councilman Vincent Gentile come across our Facebook wall – we thought this was interesting in light of last week’s report that Fort Hamilton High School principal Jo Ann Chester was expected to retire/resign/be forced out:
I just got off the phone with the DOE High School Superintendent who informed me that Mrs. Kaye Houlihan will be the interim acting principal at Ft. Hamilton High School. Mrs. Houlihan comes from a prestigious specialized art background as an Assistant Principal at LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Arts and Edward R. Murrow High School here in Brooklyn. I wish her the best as she completes the screening process with the Dept. of Education and the Community Education Council and as a proud Ft. Hamilton alum, I look forward to working with her for the future of our great community.
