Lexington Two School District announced new principals Wednesday, including the one who will replace the Airport High School leader who resigned after his assistant's student sex scandal.

Damm served as an interim principal at Gilbert High School in Lexington School District 1, according to a Lexington Two statement. Before that, he was an interim principal at Bookman Road Elementary.
