"I am very pleased to have Dr. Jordan as the principal of our new elementary when it opens next fall," Argyle ISD Superintendent Dr. Telena Wright said.

The School Board also approved the hiring of Kimberly McCage as the new Assistant Principal at Hilltop Elementary on Monday night.


McCage has been serving as an administrative intern on the campus since the start of the school year.

She has several years of experience teaching grades 2nd-8th and has also been a teacher mentor, coach and Student Council sponsor.

"We are very excited to bring Mrs. McCage on as a new Assistant Principal at Hilltop Elementary," Hilltop Principal Dona Lumsden said. "She has been with us for nine weeks as an intern and has already made a huge impact on the campus. It has been great to watch her build such strong relationships with staff, students and parents while only being here for a few hours a day. It will be exciting to watch her grow as an administrator as she becomes a full-time member of our team. Her energy is contagious and we are happy to welcome her aboard."
