From 2009-11, she was principal of Adlai Stevenson School in Cleveland. Ms. Freeman holds a B.A. in communication from Cleveland State University and a M.Ed. in elementary education from John Carroll University.
“Principal Freeman leaves a legacy of excellence in the Lomond Community. The students and staff excelled under her leadership,” stated Interim Superintendent Stephen Wilkins.
“Ms. Freeman will be missed,” said incoming Superintendent David Glasner. “Lomond has flourished under her stewardship. Cleveland is gaining an educator with a deep understanding of curriculum and instruction. We wish her the very best.”
The District will immediately begin a search for her replacement.
