Heather Young will become the new principal at Manual Academy effective July 1st for the 2014 2015 school year, according to a release Tuesday from Peoria District 150. Young replaces Mrs. Taunya Jenkins who will be transferring to the district's Family and Community Coordinator position and taking on additional responsibilities in the Curriculum and Instruction Department. The move to Manual is a homecoming for Young who started as a nurse at Manual High School in 1999 before receiving her teaching certificate and becoming a classroom teacher at Manual in 2005. Young has been principal at Hines Primary since 2012.
