Robert Stump is ready to become a Staunton River Golden Eagle.
Stump visited with faculty, staff and students recently after being named as the new principal of the school.
He will officially take on his new duties July 1, but the transition has already begun.
Stump told the SRHS faculty, during a meeting held May 14, that he wanted to help them use every bit of the strengths they have in educating students.
"This is what I want to do," he said of getting ready to assume his new position.
