Lake County Schools Superintendent Diane Kornegay selected Bill Miller as the new principal for Eustis Middle School. Miller was most recently former Chief Academic Officer for the district.
The move is part of Kornegay’s efforts to make Lake County schools models of transformation and Lake County a destination district. The recommendations will be presented to the School Board for approval at the June 26 meeting.
After working in the district for 35 years, Miller came out of retirement to assume the role of Chief Academic Officer for Lake County Schools, overseeing curriculum and monitoring student achievement and the accountability of programs. Previously, Miller was principal of Leesburg High School from 2008 through his retirement in 2015, bringing the school out from state oversight and raising its grade to a C. He held several other leadership positions in the district over the years including Principal at Umatilla Middle School, Principal at Eustis High School and Assistant Principal at Carver Middle School.
Miller earned a bachelor’s degree in Health and Physical Education from West Chester University and a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Nova University.
