FORT JENNINGS — Fort Jennings School Board members approved Matthew Dubé as the next elementary school principal and introduced him at the board meeting on July 16.

Dubé comes to Jennings school district from Pandora-Gilboa where he was a science and math teacher. He, his wife Kelly and his three sons and one daughter, live in the village.

“Coming home is nice. It’s a similar school system with close knit families,” he said. “I’m looking forward to meeting all the students, parents and teachers at the beginning of the school year.”

He said Jennings is a bit smaller with a difference of approximately six kids per grade level.
