        Lebanon City Schools and Mason City Schools are awash with new administrators.

        The Lebanon school board approved the hiring of two principals Monday night, while Mason's board agreed to hire three high school assistant principals Tuesday night.

        Tom Olson, assistant principal at Mason High School for three years, will be principal of Berry Middle School. Mr. Olson, a Lebanon High School graduate, taught social studies at Berry and at Lebanon High School before accepting the administrative position at Mason High.

        Mr. Olson said the transition to Lebanon is easy because he lives in the city and has nearly all his life.

        “I have kids in the high school here,” he said. “It's an easy thing for me to do.”

        Mr. Olson said his first task will be to meet parents, students and staff.

        Sallie Weisgerber will be principal of Holbrook Elementary School. Ms. Weisgerber comes to Lebanon City Schools from Blue Ash Elementary, where she was assistant principal.

        Mr. Olson will be paid $68,876 annually, and Ms. Weisgerber will be paid $63,578.

        Mason City Schools filled its three high school assistant principal vacancies after narrowing down the top choices from a pool of 36 applicants.

        Those hired were:

        • Greg Power, who since 1997 has taught social studies and language arts at Sycamore Junior High. Before that, he taught sixth grade for 11 years and third grade for nine years in Sycamore Schools. Mr. Power served as the summer school principal for Sycamore Schools for five years and social studies subject leader for eight.

        He served in the Air Force and is a 24-year member of the Ohio Air National Guard. His rank is lieutenant colonel. His annual salary as assistant high school principal will be $69,180.

        • Terri Holden, who has a doctorate in literacy, comes to Mason from Glen Este High School, where she served as the assistant principal for three years. She has also taught middle school and high school English for West Clermont Schools.

        Dr. Holden's annual salary will be $69,180.

        • John Spieser has taught science at Milford Junior High since 1994 and was the National Junior Honor Society adviser for four years. Mr. Spieser was an assistant coach for high school football (1994-97) and coach for high school track (1994-2000).

        Mr. Spieser's annual salary will be $53,616.
