MONTPELIER — Renee DeVore will officially be Montpelier High School's next principal.

So decided members of the Montpelier-Roxbury Public Schools Board of Directors at a special meeting at MHS on Tuesday.

DeVore, who has been the principal at Deer Path Middle School West in Lake Forest, Illinois, since 2012, has also worked as a principal, assistant principal and teacher in three schools in California.

DeVore will replace Mike McRaith, the MHS principal for the past four years, who accepted a new position in January as the assistant executive director of the Vermont Principals’ Association.

DeVore will assume the duties of the position July 1.

"I am beyond thrilled to be a part of such an incredibly supportive school community who values a holistic educational experience for all students," DeVore said Tuesday.
