The not-yet-built Edgewood Elementary School on Charleston's West Side has a new principal.
Pam Gould, currently the principal at Watts Elementary, was selected to lead the new school. She will oversee development of a novel new model for teaching and a completely new curriculum at a school that will cater to some of the county's most high-risk students.
Kanawha school board members approved Gould's appointment to that post last week. Henry Nearman, principal at J.E. Robins Elementary, was originally hired for the position but decided last month instead to take over as principal at Ruffner, another Charleston elementary school.
