Interim principal named for Del Mar Hills

The Del Mar Union School district’s board of trustees has named former Cardiff School District Superintendent Vince Jewell as acting principal at Del Mar Hills Academy. Jewell will temporarily fill the position vacated by Laurie Francis, who left to become principal at Carmel Valley Middle School. Francis was principal at Del Mar Hills for the past seven years. District trustees say they hope to have a permanent principal named for the school by the end of this year.

Jewell, 58, retired last year from the Cardiff district after spending four years as superintendent. At the time he said he was retiring to devote more time to being an artist. In assuming the Cardiff post five years ago, Jewell replaced Rodger Smith, who is currently the Del Mar Union School District’s director of facilities and planning and director of human resources.

The other major vacancy in the school district remains that of superintendent. Trustees are currently interviewing applicants in hopes of naming a replacement for retired superintendent Tom Bishop by the first day of school on Monday, Aug. 25. The district received 20 applications for the district’s top post.
