Bruce Brann Annouces Retirement, and Other News

Harrison Middle School Principal Bruce Brann has announced that he will retire at the end of the 2015-16 school year. Bruce commenced his career as an English teacher at Morse High School in Bath. From there, he moved over to Bath Junior High School as Assistant Principal. He came to YHS in 1988 as Assistant Principal, replacing Ken Murphy. In 1992 he was hired as Principal of Wiscasset High School, where he stayed for a couple of years. He returned to Yarmouth in 1994 to take over at HMS in the third year of its existence.

While Assistant Principal at YHS, Bruce was very popular with students, and the Class of 1992 dedicated its year book to him. At recess and lunch time he would stand with students by the window in the main lobby, his presence discouraging teenage shenanigans. Bruce has guided HMS with a steady hand, and will be missed by faculty and students alike. The October 15th Northern Forecaster carries a full story.
