HAMILTON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - The principal of Hamilton County High School has resigned, according to the county's superintendent. 

According To Rex Mitchell, the superintendent of Hamilton County Schools, Dr. Felicia Moss submitted her resignation as principal of Hamilton County High School on Friday afternoon.

As a former HCHS graduate, with more than 30 years of experience in education, she decided that she wanted to pursue other ventures.

According to Mitchell, Dr. Moss was initially hired as a favor to the county in an attempt to boost their school scores. During her first year as principal, she managed to help Hamilton County High go from a failing school, to a 'C' grade school.

For this, Rex says he's indebted to her. He says she's done a wonderful job and there's no bad blood over her resignation.

As of now, Mitchell is actively looking for a replacement with an interim leadership staff in place to fill her duties.

A school board meeting is set for Tuesday at 6 p.m. where this search will be discussed in further detail.

This comes at the same time as a shakeup on the football field. 

Mitchell says the head football coach submitted his resignation letter Tuesday morning just a few days after the offensive and defensive coaches submitted their resignations. You can read more about the football staff resignations here
