Wellsville's Marcus hired as Hornell assistant principal

HORNELL — The Hornell City School District Board of Education last week approved the appointment of a new secondary level assistant principal.

Eli Marcus, an Arkport Central School District graduate who is currently an earth science teacher at Wellsville Central School, received a four-year probationary appointment Nov. 6 as Hornell’s grades 7-9 assistant principal, effective Dec. 7.

The position was previously filled on an interim basis.

Marcus holds a bachelor of arts degree in environmental studies from Alfred University and a Master’s of science degree from Mississippi State in geosciences. He is expected to complete his certification in educational administration at SUNY Brockport next month.

Marcus was the 2019 summer school principal for Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES in Wellsville. He has played a role on Wellsville School District committees that have examined the state of school security and the shift to a Latin honors system.
