The Hot Springs School District Administration and School Board are pleased to announce Eileen Ellars has been selected as the new principal at Langston Aerospace and Environmental Studies Magnet School beginning July 1, 2017. Ellars will take over the position currently held by Taryn Echols, the recently newly named Hot Springs World Class High School principal.

Selected for her communication skills, decision-making, community fo-cus and instructional leadership, Ms. Ellars has demonstrated the at-tributes necessary for the principal position. She is excited about the opportunity to work with students on the front end of their educational journey while sharing in the absolute joy in watching those same students develop academically, socially, and physi-cally. “Leading at a school with such a rich history is an honor. I look forward to embracing the past while including it as a part of the future. It is exciting to be a part of the opportunities that continue to unfold as the district embarks on the construction of a new building. I feel blessed to be able to work with a strong supportive staff and anticipate a smooth transition into my new role.” said Ellars. Superintendent Dr. Mike Hernandez stated, “I am excited about Ms. Ellars taking over at Langston. Her commitment to our kids and district are beyond measure. The staff, students and community will benefit from her leadership and compassion for kids.”
