Meet new CHS principal next week

Clough hails from Juneau, bringing 27 years of public education experience

Cordova students and parents can meet Cordova Junior/Senior High School’s new principal, Curt Clough, before the school year begins next week. He invites the public to a meet and greet from 7-8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24 at CHS media center.

Clough and his wife, Libby, have relocated to Cordova in the beginning of August. Libby is the administrative assistant for the school district.

“Right now, (we are) adjusting and waiting for our stuff to get here on the ferry,” he said in an email to The Cordova Times. “So far, the people I have met are great. (I’m) enjoying being back in a building around kids and working with the staff and community.”

This will be his 27th year in public education. Previously, he was the education administrator for the Career and Technical Education department with Alaska Department of Education and Early Development in Juneau.

Clough says he has 11 years teaching experience in middle school and high school along with 16 years in administration in various positions including athletic and activities director, principal, superintendent, assistant dean at postsecondary and his most recent work in Juneau.

Outside work, Clough enjoys hiking, biking, golf and photography and he is an avid social media user on Twitter and Facebook.

The school year begins Thursday, Aug. 25 in Cordova.
