A second high school in Hardin County Schools is searching for a new principal.
Ron Ortiz, principal at Central Hardin High School, announced his retirement this week to CHHS staff and HCS administrators. Ortiz’s decision comes soon after Bill Dennison, principal at North Hardin High School, retired at the end of the school year.
Ortiz has been with HCS since 1986. He was an assistant principal at the school before being named principal in 2003. He was deployed to Iraq with an Army Reserve unit, returning to his position the following year.
