Four Charles County Public Schools principals have announced they will resign or retire at the end of the school year.

Peter Cevenini, principal at North Point High School, has announced his resignation. He began with CCPS in 1989 and opened North Point in 2005. He has taken a position as director for K-12 Education for Cisco’s Internet Business Solutions.

“I am extremely proud to have served with Mr. Richmond and Charles County Public Schools during the past 17 years.  I could not imagine working with a finer group of people and will miss them greatly,” Cevenini said.  


Susan Fowler, who has served as principal of Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer Elementary School for 10 years, is retiring from CCPS. She has accepted a position as principal of Lexington Park Elementary School in St. Mary’s County. 

“Before coming to CCPS, I worked in St. Mary's County Public Schools, as a speech/language pathologist, administrative assistant and assistant principal.  I have always wanted to bring my career full circle by returning to St. Mary's County as an elementary principal. In addition, I have had the privilege to work with the most incredible teachers and support staff anywhere. I am certain that the Jenifer community will continue to thrive under the leadership of the next principal,” Fowler said.


Sylvia Lawson, principal at Benjamin Stoddert Middle School, is resigning from CCPS. She has served CCPS for more than 20 years. Calvert County Public Schools announced that Lawson has been appointed as vice principal at Patuxent High School in Lusby, Md.


Kristin Shields, who has served CCPS since 2000, has resigned as principal of William A. Diggs Elementary School, which she opened this school year. She is returning to Pennsylvania where she has been appointed principal at Latrobe Elementary School.

“I have worked with some very talented and special teachers over the years.  I am grateful for the outstanding staff at William A. Diggs Elementary and all their hard work in opening a new school.  I will truly miss working with the students and staff of Charles County Public Schools,” Shields said.

Superintendent of Schools James E. Richmond will make principal appointment recommendations to the Board of Education on June 12 and June 25.
