We regret to announce that Sherene Judeh, the Founding Principal of Hiawatha College Prep – Northrop (HCP-N), steps down from her role as of December 20. Sherene has led the school through its founding and has consistently brought deep care for students, families, and staff at HCP-N. We thank Sherene for her leadership of HCP-N through its founding and wish her well.

After hearing from and involving HCP-N staff members and families in an Interim Principal interview process, we are are happy to announce that HCP-N Dean of Instruction, Beda Martinez, will assume the role of Interim Principal for the remainder of the school year. Beda and the HCP-N team are working closely together to ensure a smooth transition and great school experience for students, families and staff.

We have also launched the search for HCP-N’s long-term leader. Please share the role description with educational leaders in your professional network. If you have a direct referral, please send contact information to Hiawatha Academies Chief Talent Officer Dawn Gunderson Taylor.
