Herald-Mail.com: Royer Named Superintendent of Waynesboro School District

May 10, 2012

Herald-Mail.com recently reported that Wendy L. Royer, Adjunct Professor of Education, will be stepping into the position of assistant superintendent for the Waynesboro Area School District on Aug. 1.

Her first teaching job out of college in 1989 was in the Waynesboro Area School District as a learning support teacher for students in first through sixth grade.

She served as an instructional support teacher from 1992-96 when she became acting principal of Summitview Elementary School.

“It’s a great district. It always has been,” Royer said. “I left to get other experiences when there weren’t opportunities here for me. It was always my hope to return to the school district — this is home.”

On Tuesday, the Waynesboro Area School Board unanimously approved Royer as assistant superintendent.

Royer will begin her duties at a salary of $110,000. Her contract runs through July 30, 2015.

“I think it’s really important for the district leadership to be local and to live in the community that you work in. If you work this hard, you may as well be where you raised your children and where you plan on living,” Royer said.

Royer is currently superintendent of schools for the Springfield Township-Montgomery County (Pa.) School District, as well as an adjunct professor at Arcadia University’s doctoral program in Philadelphia.
