Trumble has been serving in the role since Jarrett Powers, former IHS principal, suddenly left for a job in Cayuga County in October 2014.

“We were in the early stages of a national search process for the next principal of Ithaca High School. All things changed when Mr. Trumble walked into my office and asked to stay,” Superintendent Luvelle Brown said in a statement.

“From my perspective, no search process would have revealed a more committed, qualified, and talented educational leader for our community.”

Trumble began teaching at IHS in 1992 and spent 11 years as a social studies teacher and cross-country and track coach.

After that, Trumble spent nine years as an associate principal and principal of Boynton Middle School before becoming Chief Secondary Officer in 2012.
