BRUNSWICK — Heather Blanchard, a Lewiston school official, will become principal of Harriet Beecher Stowe Elementary School on July 1. The Brunswick School Board recently approved a two-year contract.

Blanchard, 36, is a former elementary school teacher and assistant principal in three Lewiston schools. She serves as the city’s director of instructional support.

Harriet Beecher Stowe School has not had a permanent principal since last summer.

In making its final selection, the committee drew on parent and teacher input from a public forum two weeks ago, where Blanchard said she fielded questions about her leadership style.

“I am a fan of building teams and putting processes together,” she said Tuesday, and will call on staff and faculty for guidance.
