Damon Wright, an assistant principal at California High School in San Ramon, was named as the new principal at Benicia High School. The announcement came from Assistant Superintendant Michael Gardner immediately after the board voted to accept the personnel action list at the regular meeting, Thursday, June 7.
Wright, a Sacramento State graduate, his wife and two elementary school aged daughters live in American Canyon. Before becoming a school administrator Wright was a school psychologist and a counselor.
“Mr. Wright was selected from a highly competitive field,” said Gardner. “He had some of the best references I’ve ever checked on.”
