On Wednesday, May 5, principal Janet Schwamb sent out a message announcing that she will be retiring from the Ann Arbor Public Schools on July 1, 2021.

Preceded by 17 years as a Registered Professional Nurse and Nurse Administrator, Schwamb will be completing her 31st year working in public education and fifth year as principal of Huron.

“Serving as the principal of Huron High School has been a highlight of my career and certainly among the best years of my educational career,” Schwamb wrote. “I have appreciated your support during my time as principal at Huron. I have felt honored to serve your students and will miss the many connections and friendships I have made while working in the Ann Arbor Public Schools.”

In Schwamb’s next chapter, she plans on spending more time with her family and engaging in activities that she will now have the time to pursue. 

“I will assist in any way that I can to ensure a smooth transition for the next principal at Huron High School,” Schwamb said. “I wish you all the best in the future.”
