W.T. White didn’t waste any time lining up a new principal since Orlando Riddick took another position this summer with Austin ISD. Most parents and students probably know by now since it was announced at Friday night’s football game, but Anita Hardwick has officially been named the new principal and starts on Wednesday.

Hardwick isn’t new to the district, coming from her post as principal of Franklin Middle School. She also served as principal of Whithers Elementary when DISD began its dual language program.
