Harding School Hires New Principal

Harding School finally has a new principal after losing Sally Kingston to an administrative position in the Carpinteria district. Finding a leader for Harding was especially challenging because the Westside elementary school now follows an International Baccalaureate curriculum. The district also sought a bilingual principal, and the new hire, Nuh Kimbwala, speaks fluent Spanish. He was the principal of Bloomington Middle School in the Colton district for four years. His salary will be between $98,428-$110,633.
