Board Chair Carmen Ranta congratulated Ms Campbell on her appointment. “We are pleased that Denise has accepted the position of Principal of David Stoddart School. Her previous successful experience as a principal, including in a K-12 school, her dedication to student success, her passion for teaching and team leadership, and her support for parent and community involvement are all attributes we value.”
