The staff and students of Henry Wilson Elementary School did not have to look far for their new leader. Polly Golden, who has begun her role as principal immediately, was the director of federal projects and professional development for Manchester School District.
Prior to coming to Manchester in 2012, Golden was principal at Milton Elementary School in Milton, New Hampshire. She has worked closely with Wilson and other elementary schools in the city which receive federal funding for programs such as Title I, School Improvement Grants, and priority school status.
“I am thrilled to be part of the Wilson team in this position,” said Golden. “There is so much learning to celebrate, and the commitment to continued success among everyone in the Wilson community is undeniable.”
