AMHERST — Amherst Regional High School’s interim principal will remain in the position on a permanent basis.

Talib Sadiq, appointed last July following the departure of Gene Jones for a principal position in North Carolina, is staying on due to his “highly successful service,” according to an announcement from School Superintendent Michael Morris on Friday.

“The district is fortunate to have a proven leader with such expertise, who knows the ARHS community so well and has already dedicated many years to supporting our students and families,” Morris said in a statement.

Previously assistant principal at the high school for two years, Sadiq started as a counselor and dean of students at the middle school in 2006. He was a house parent at the Amherst A Better Chance Program from 2009 to 2016. In addition, he is a 1988 graduate of the high school.

In a survey of students, families and faculty and staff, a significant majority expressed support to keep Sadiq in the leadership role, Morris said.
