In the News - superintendent search, local princess

Posted Sep 10, 2008 @ 10:00 AM


The School Committee last night unanimously supported conducting an internal search to replace outgoing Superintendent Wayne Ogden, who announced his resignation Aug. 27.

"We have a lot of internal talent. I think it's important to promote from within," said Vice Chairwoman Paula Mullen.

Choosing an internal candidate will save money and has the added bonus of having a ripple effect, she said, as selecting a current staff member will leave an opening for another employee to fill.

An external candidate, on the other hand, would have a learning curve in getting to know a new and large school district, Mullen said.

The other six School Committee members expressed similar thoughts.

Noting that the last search for a superintendent took "quite a while," School Committee member Ed Cafasso said the district would save time and money by selecting Ogden's successor from an internal pool.

As a little girl, Gabrielle Murray dreamed of being a princess and becoming a professional singer.

Not too much to ask, if you're 5 years old.

Today, at 26, Murray actually is a princess - the only princess - at King Richard's Faire in Carver, which runs on weekends now through Oct. 19.

"Little girls believe she really is a princess, and a lot of them believe she's the princess from (the movie) 'Enchanted,"' said Gabrielle's mother, Elaine Murray.

"You tell them no, and they won't believe you. Even grown men - she goes by them and they go all mushy," she said, chuckling and shaking her head.

Even sitting at the dining room table at her Franklin home in regular clothing, sans her soft pink gown and tiara, it's easy to imagine Murray as a princess.

Like a royal from the Renaissance, her flowing red locks fall to her waist, she kicks into high soprano and takes on a slight English accent as she belts out one of Princess Aria's songs, pining for true love to find her.

Amid the jousting, jugglers, angels and variety acts, Murray plays Princess Aria Lumere all day, she said.
