Daggett To Preside Over Neshaminy Middle School

Posted: April 26, 1996

LANGHORNE — In an unanimous vote, the Neshaminy school board approved the appointment of Ronald Daggett as principal of Neshaminy Middle School.

Beginning July 1, Daggett will replace Ward McMasters, who is retiring.

McMasters has been the middle school principal for six years.

For Daggett, now an assistant principal at Neshaminy High School, the appointment to run the 782-student school caps a long career in the district.

``I'm excited,'' said Daggett, 52. ``It makes it extra special that the school board and the community has faith in me as a leader.''

Daggett began his career as an instrumental music teacher at Neshaminy Junior High School in 1967.

He later worked at Neshaminy High School as an instrumental music teacher before becoming an assistant principal.

``I'm going back to where my career first started. I feel like this is a homecoming.''

Originally from Hatboro, Daggett said working as an assistant principal has prepared him for his new job in the district.

``I think that anyone who goes into an administrative position has a goal to become a building principal,'' he said.

``I want to put in practice everything I've learned so far,'' he said. ``I love the age group of middle school students; it's a very special and unique time in their life.''

Daggett said he planned to continue the work McMasters started.

``The teaching staff there has done a phenomenal job,'' he said.
