Henry Abbott Tech in Danbury has named former Vice Principal Stacey Butkus as Principal of the school on the heels of Principal Joseph Tripodi leaving for another technical High School in the state. Tripodi has been selected to fill the position at JM Wright Tech in Stamford when it reopens this fall.
The school was closed in 2009 because of lack of enrollment, but is currently undergoing renovations.
The Superintendent of the Technical School system sent out a memo of the announcement saying that Tripodi will help recruit teachers for core classes and for nine trades. He will also be responsible for establishing a pool of freshmen students.
