Paradise Intermediate School will have new leadership next year, as school counselor Kristin Gage will take over as principal.
The school board held a special meeting Monday night to make the selection. They unanimously agreed to give her a two-year contract.
Gage has been in education for 19 years, 15 of them in PISD.
The district began searching for a new intermediate school principal earlier this month when current principal Terry McCutchen announced his resignation.
According to Superintendent Monty Chapman and McCutchen, he was leaving PISD for personal reasons and had not yet lined up another job.
