MCPS Names New Principal at Clarksburg HS and Promotes Current Damascus HS Principal

June 15, 2017

There will be changes in leadership at two UpCounty high schools as the Montgomery County Board of Education has appointed a new principal at Clarksburg High school and promoted the principal at Damascus High School to a post as director of school support for high schools for all of MCPS. 
   At Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting, the Board appointed Edward K. Owusu to replace outgoing Principal Stephen C. Whiting as Principal at Clarksburg High School. Whiting has been in the principal’s seat at Clarksburg since August 2014

   Owusu is currently the Principal at Shady Grove Middle School, a position that he has been in since 2009. Prior to his eight years leading Shady Grove Middle School, Owusu was a principal intern and assistant principal at Thomas S. Wootton High School in Rockville. He has been employed by Montgomery County Public Schools since 1994 when he began as a technology education teacher at Argyle Middle School. He also worked as a student support specialist at Roberto Clemente Middle School in Germantown.

   Located in Gaithersburg, Shady Grove Middle School is one of the smaller middle schools in the county with just 627 students in 2016-2017. Owusu will be taking over a high school with more than three times the number students. MCPS projects Clarksburg High School’s enrollment for the upcoming school year to be 2,182 students, up from 2,114 in 2016-2017.

   Owusu holds a master’s degree in education from Bowie State University and did his undergrad studies at Virginia Tech. He has also served as an adjunct instructor at Hood College in Frederick from 2014 to 2016.

   His appointment as Principal of Clarksburg High School is effective July 1, 2017.

   In other UpCounty education news, Jennifer L. Webster, the current principal at Damascus High School was been appointed Director of the Office of School Support and Improvement of High Schools effective July 1, 2017. The Board of Education will have to appoint a new principal at Damascus High School by July 1, 2017.
   Webster has been at Damascus since 2013.
