Westchase Elementary Principal Erik Holley to Bid Farewell

Westchase Elementary will be led by a new chief wizard when the new school year begins in August 2018.

On May 4, WOW learned that Holley would be departing his position at Westchase Elementary and taking persona leave. It was not clear when that leave would officially begin. On May 4 Holley was still working on campus in the leadership role.

Harrison Peters, Chief of Schools for the Hillsborough County School District confirmed his departure. “He will be transferring out as principal and we’ve already advertised the position,” he said. “We’ll be looking to appoint a new principal in the coming weeks.”

Holley was named principal at Westchase Elementary in November of 2013, replacing then principal Scott Weaver.

“He’s a really great guy who’s worked well with kids,” Peters said of Holley. “We’re excited about whatever he’s decided to do.”

WOW has reached out by phone to Holley and left him a message requesting more information about his plans. Staff will add to this report as more information becomes available.
