ROCKPORT, Maine — The longtime principal of Camden Hills Regional High School has notified the district of his intention to leave at the end of the school year.
Nick Ithomitis was hired by the Five-Town Community School District before the start of the 2005-2006 school year, succeeding James Anastasio.
Superintendent Maria Libby said the district has been fortunate to have the consistent leadership of Ithomitis.
“He is leaving behind quite a legacy,” she said.
During his tenure, the school created robust international cultural programs, according to Libby. She said during the past three years alone more than 150 students have either participated in foreign exchange programs or traveled abroad for programs.
Ithomitis was not available for comment Wednesday, but in a newsletter to parents the principal said “it was a difficult decision as I truly love being the principal of CHRHS. At the same time, I know it is time to let go, move along.”
Camden Hills serves nearly 700 students from Camden, Rockport, Hope, Appleton and Lincolnville.
