  Aspen’s High School has a new principal.  45-year-old Tharyn Mulberry has been described as dramatically improving academics at the Pueblo high school where he’s principal now. Mulberry says he’s inspired to continue the already high achievement in Aspen.

“Before I do anything, I think it’ll be really important to make sure that the staff and myself get to know one another,” said Mulberry on Friday, July 24th. “And that we figure out together what the future’s going to look like for that school.”

Aspen’s previous principal resigned this spring after three years. Mulberry begins work the first week of August and is moving to Aspen over the next week with his wife and two children.
