District Welcomes Two New Principals
Mr. Joshua Cable Mr. Michael Silbaugh
The Hampton Township School District welcomes to the team Mr. Joshua Cable and Mr. Michael Silbaugh.
At the August 7 meeting, the Board of School Directors unanimously approved Mr. Cable as the Assistant Principal at Hampton High School. Mr. Cable’s effective date of hire is August 1, 2017. He is replacing Dr. Stephen Pellathy, who resigned in June.
Mr. Cable previously served as an assistant principal and social studies teacher with Colleton County High School in Walterboro, S.C., from July 2009 through June 2017. He also has experience in a STEM School within a School Model, Project-Based Learning and developing positive cultures of learning. With his background as an assistant principal at Colleton County High School, he exhibited a sound decision-making framework based upon the law and best practices for high school administration. He possesses a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Purdue University, Calumet.
“It is an honor to be joining the Hampton High School staff,” said Mr. Cable. “Coming from a one-to-one, project-based learning environment, I am excited to be involved in the Digital Transformation the District is undertaking. It is going to add a new avenue of learning and engagement for our students.”
The Board also unanimously approved the appointment of Mr. Michael Silbaugh as the Assistant Principal at Hampton Middle School. He is filling the former role of Mrs. Marlynn Lux, who was appointed by the Board of School Directors to serve as the HMS Principal on June 12, 2017.
Mr. Silbaugh previously served as the Assistant Principal at Pine Richland High School from May 2012 to present. He holds a Level II Permanent Administrative Certificate and a master’s degree of science in curriculum and instruction from St. Vincent’s College. He is working toward a doctoral degree with Gannon University.
"I am extremely honored to be part of the Hampton Township School District,” said Mr. Silbaugh. “I look forward to collaborating with staff and community members to meet the needs of the students and carry on Hampton's tradition of excellence. Engaging in the work to ensure Hampton's vision for innovative teaching and learning will be an exciting opportunity for my professional growth, which in turn will have an impact on the growth of our educational community as a whole."
Mr. Silbaugh will be starting his new position at HMS on October 9. Dr. Roberta Good – who has been serving as Acting Assistant Principal since June 2016, will graciously continue serving the Middle School in that capacity until Mr. Silbaugh’s arrival.
“I am really looking forward to working with Mr. Silbaugh,” said Mrs. Lux. “He not only comes with a lot of administrative experience, but he also is very passionate and excited to work with middle school students.”
