On Monday night January 30, the Northumberland County School Board met to discuss details for the budget for the coming year. Following the workshop that was open to the public, the board convened into the previously announced closed portion of their meeting to discuss personnel matters, during which time the board voted unanimously to promote Acting Superintendent of Schools Holly Wargo to full-time superintendent.
Wargo had been acting superintendent since November when her predecessor left the superintendent’s position. Prior to that, Wargo had been Assistant Superintendent since 2014.
A graduate of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania who subsequently earned a masters degree and PhD, Wargo has been working in education since 1994. She was principal of Lancaster High School before coming to Northumberland.
Wargo said of her appointment as superintendent early Tuesday January 31, “This is an honor.”
