Welcome Dr. Diann Kearney, Interim Principal


Dear Hunter Elementary School Families,


I am excited to serve as your interim principal from January 4 until your new principal is named. Dr. Thompson, Central Area Superintendent, and I have discussed the unique timing of my appointment and how I can best support the Hunter Elementary School Community. We are both confident that together with your support, we will be able to sustain the positive energy and momentum that makes this school such a wonderful place to work and learn.


Despite the fact that my appointment falls during this unique time, I am committed to supporting students, staff, and families to make this transition as seamless as possible. My leadership experience as principal of Conn Elementary, Martin Middle, and Apex High School, has afforded me many unique opportunities including moving school campuses in preparation for renovations and reconstruction, working with staff and community to develop a new magnet theme, strengthening school culture to reduce teacher turnover, and garnering community support to promote a greater sense of identity and school pride. I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to be part of WCPSS and am excited about this new chapter in my professional career.


If you would like to meet or have questions for me, please do not hesitate to email me at or leave a message with the front office. My WCPSS email is activated and I will soon be added to the Hunter email lists. I appreciate your support in the coming months, and I look forward to working with you.




Diann Kearney, Ed.D.

Interim Principal
