Acting principal resigns from Princeton High School


Princeton High School Assistant Principal Jared Warren, who has served as the acting principal at Princeton High School for the past few months, has resigned to take another job.

Warren will become the principal of the Mercer County Technical Schools at its Sypek Campus in Hopewell Township. He had been an assistant principal at Princeton High School for the past seven years.

The Princeton Public Schools Board of Education accepted Warren’s resignation at its May 4 meeting. His resignation takes effect June 30.

Warren was named acting principal after Principal Jessica Baxter resigned in late 2020. She accepted the principal’s post at Randolph High School.

Warren was lauded by several school board members at the May 4 meeting.

“I wish him nothing but the best. I thank him for his hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic,” school board member Michele Tuck Ponder said.

Susan Kanter agreed and said she had worked with Warren on several committees. He will “definitely be missed,” she said.

“I am really excited for him and his new opportunity, and the good work he could do,” Kanter said.

Warren will be replaced by Frank Chmiel, who was named the permanent principal at Princeton High School at the school board’s April 27 meeting.

Chmiel, who lives in Princeton, will assume the reins at Princeton High School on July 1. He is coming to the school district from the Franklin Township Public School District, where he has been the principal at Franklin High School for the past three years.
