Suzanne "Fitz" Fitzgerald Announced as Bridges High School's Interim Principal
On Tuesday, June 4, Suzanne “Fitz” Fitzgerald was announced as Bridges High School’s interim principal for next school year. Fitz has been a Bridges staff member for seven years and taught at GSMS for five years prior to that. Fitz has been a strong contributor to the leadership team at Bridges and is deeply familiar with the school, its programs, and its students. At this time of year, the likelihood of finding a strong pool of applicants for the principal position is low. Given that Fitz has such extensive knowledge and experience with Bridges, and that she enjoys strong support from teachers and students, her appointment as interim principal was a natural decision.

Overwhelmingly, the feedback from the interview committee was that Lyn is the right person to be Roaring Fork High School’s next leader.
