AMHERST — An Amherst Regional High School graduate who has served as assistant principal at the school for the past two years will be the interim principal for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Talib Sadiq, a 1988 graduate, was named to the position, recently vacated by Gene Jones who resigned to take a principal position in North Carolina, by Superintendent Michael Morris.

In a letter to the community this week announcing Sadiq’s selection, Morris noted that he also has served as dean of students and a counselor at Amherst Regional Middle School, and will be assisted by Miki Gromacki, who served as interim principal before Jones’ yearlong tenure.

“We are pleased that Mr. Sadiq will bring his expertise and his years of experience in the Amherst Regional Schools to his role as interim principal, and know that ARHS students, families and staff will be well supported in the coming school year by Mr. Sadiq and Dr. Gromacki,” Morris wrote.

A process to identify and announce a third administrator to fill Sadiq’s position is underway. A national search for a permanent high school principal will be conducted over the coming months.
