    I have had the pleasure of knowing Jon Moody as Middle school principal to HS principal at MHS!! I also had the pleasure of taking care of his mom, whom I am fond of!! He is dedicated to his family as well as his profession!! As a principal, kids would tell you, he just gets it!! I had him watch over my daughter, who never had to visit him for discipline, however he took time for all students and their achievements, not just the failures!! He was totally involved with all students!! Was sad to hear of his departure since my son will join the HS this year, however repect and understand his decision for family and professional growth!! No matter if I see him at his childrens events with his Eagles hat on or supporting Skowhegan in his black and orange, will give him a hug!! He is a awesome leader in our kids lives and success, and not all can say that!! So no good byes but until we meet again, which we will since you only moved to Skowhegan district, we have lots of athletic sports we play them!! My son played with the Skowhegan Bucks baseball and great people out there!! We wish u well!! Even if we will miss you!! Never doubt your choices in life, especially if doing it for your family!! God bless you Jon Moody!! Love The Hosea’s!!!😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎
