The Hugo Public School announces the employment of Tod Harrison as principal of Hugo High School. Harrison officially assumed his responsibilities as principal on July 1.
Harrison brings a wide-range of administrative, classroom and educational experience to his new position in Hugo. He has served as the principal of Durant Intermediate
School in Durant, Okla., for the past 12 years, and has been an administrator for the past 18 years. Harrison has also taught in Texas and Japan, instructing social studies and physical education.
Harrison holds a Master’s Degree from Southeastern Oklahoma State University, and is enthusiastic about his future in Hugo.
“I am looking forward to this new challenge,” Harrison said. “I am pleased to have been given the opportunity to assist and make a difference at Hugo High School.”
While Harrison has never worked for the Hugo School District, he is no stranger to the area. His wife, Lori (Sportsman), went to high school in Fort Towson.
“We are very pleased to welcome Mr. Harrison to Hugo. He brings to his new role strong administrative and teaching experience,” said Karen Lyles, Superintendent of Schools.
Harrison was hired as a group decision from the superintendent, board of education and faculty, after the resignation of principal Doyle Patterson.
