Cherella leaves to be a full time mother

Melissa Cherella, assistant to the head of school, will be leaving to become a full time mother to her baby girl due on Dec. 27.

Emily Kennedy will be taking over her position.

Kennedy began working with Cherella last week.

“It was a change I was excited for — a positive change,” Kennedy said.

Cherella said that she will miss the people most.

“I love working at a school like this where it’s really a family atmosphere; everybody’s so warm and welcoming,” she said.

“I hope to come back in a few years.”
