Superintendent Kimberly Hill announced the appointments of several acting administrators this week.
Debbie Brown, vice principal at Eva Turner Elementary School is the new acting principal at Mary B. Neal Elementary School. Brown replaces longtime principal Carol Leveillee, who last week announced she was retiring from Charles County Public Schools.
Brown has 24 years experience as a classroom teacher and 15 years as a vice principal, serving with seven different principals, most recently at Eva Turner Elementary School.
