Twenty-year teaching veteran Christopher M. Groff will be the new principal at Cedar Crest High School, chosen by the Cornwall-Lebanon school board on Monday.
Groff is replacing principal Nicole Malinoski, who accepted the same role at Cumberland Valley High School in Mechanicsburg.
Groff has served as the athletic director and assistant principal at Cedar Crest since June 2019, according to a news release from the district.
“I am truly honored to become the next Cedar Crest High School principal, and I am excited for the opportunity to serve our staff, students, district and community in this role,” Groff said in the news release.
He taught sixth grade at Cedar Crest Middle School for 20 years and served as English-language arts curriculum leader for 15. He earned his undergraduate degree from West Chester University, a master’s from Penn State University, and principal certification from Temple University.
He serves on the district’s pandemic planning committee and deputy Title IX coordinator. Previously, he was a baseball and basketball coach at the high school.
