Rebekah Solomon Named Newest FHS Vice Principal

Rebekah Solomon is congratulated by Franklin High School principal Frank Chmiel after her appointment as FHS vice principal April 26.

A 15-year veteran of the district school system who is also a born-and-bred Warrior was named a vice principal at Franklin High School April 26.

Rebekah Solomon, who most recently was supervisor of health and physical education for the district, was named to the position by the Board of Education at its regular meeting.

“I thank you for your trust,” a visibly emotional Solomon said to the board after its vote. “This is truly  proud moment.”

Solomon also thanked “every teacher who ever taught me in Franklin Township.”

“I look forward to serving my district,” she said.

Solomon, who is married to Franklin Middle School principal Nicholas Solomon, began her career in the district as a teacher at FMS. She then became the academic advisor for student athletes before her latest position prior to being named FHS vice principal.

“I just really wanted to make an impact,” she said after the meeting. “It was really challenging to see multiple changes in the high school administration, I just want to be a part of the solution.”

“It’s definitely very rewarding,” she said of the appointment.

Frank Chmiel, FHS principal, said he is “just so excited that Rebekah is joining the team.”

“She has an unparalleled work ethic, she’s very intelligent, the students like her, the teachers like her, she’s just going to be part of the winning team here,” he said.

“Warriors for life, that’s what the Solomons are,” school board president Nancy LaCorte said. “Thank you so much.”

Solomon’s appointment, which is effective June 1, completes the high school’s complement of four vice principals. She will be paid $107,500 for the year.
