ROCKTON - Hononegah Community High School soon will have a new principal, with school superintendent Michael Dugan telling the Beloit Daily News a candidate should be in place by March.

Dugan confirmed that seven candidates were interviewed for the position after 14 people applied for the job. Dugan noted that a principal pick will be named before the going before the board of education for final approval or denial.

A panel of two administrative staff and two board members met Thursday night, and Dugan noted a recommendation would be made to the board in closed session at the Feb. 20 board meeting.

Dugan also speculated that it would be possible a selection for the principal job could be made at Tuesday's joint committee meeting.

"I think a big thing for us is that we are looking for a candidate that will bring us to the next level," Dugan said. "We are very proud of our accomplishments. For a school that's doing well, how do we do even better. We are constantly looking at increasing performance and making sure that all of our students are well-served."

Outgoing principal Eric Flohr will retired at the end of the school year, June 30. Flohr has been principal since 2014 after eight years at Collinsville High School, and has become a beloved member of the high school administrative team. He earned the Principal of the Year recognition from the Illinois Principals Association for his work in Collinsville.

"The future is looking bright for us. Our school is composed of teachers and administrators who are ready to move this great learning institution to the next level," Flohr said.

Dugan said Flohr will be a tough act to follow, but added he was confident there will be a smooth transition since Flohr will be able to work with the new principal and show him the ropes.
