A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for areas west of Omaha until 11 p.m.; however, the metro area will likely have thunderstorms on and off throughout the overnight.
On the heels of Tuesday's retirement announcement of Central High School's principal, Dr. Keith Bigsby, OPS has announced his successor.
Dr. Ed Bennett will be the principal of Central beginning in the 2013-2014 school year.
Bennett has nearly 20 years of experience, serving in many different roles in the OPS district and beyond.
“Because Central High serves students from every part of the city, my history of knowing and working with families from neighborhoods throughout Omaha has prepared me well for this new opportunity,” said Bennett. “My background in curriculum, instruction and assessment will also help me continue Central’s rich tradition of academic excellence.”
