The Board of Education of Community High School District 94 is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Moses Cheng to the position of Principal. Dr. Cheng was hired at the Board's December 19, 2006 meeting and will assume the post as of July 1, 2007.

A graduate of Downers Grove South High School, Dr. Cheng earned his Bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his Master's and Doctoral degrees from Aurora University. He began his career in education as a science teacher at West Aurora High School in District 129. After a role as a Dean of Students, Dr. Cheng moved to the Principalship at Schneider Elementary School, also in District 129. After seven years, he was appointed to his current position as Assistant Principal for Teaching and Learning at Hinsdale South High School in Hinsdale Township District 86.

Dr. Cheng will spend five or six days at Community High School during the upcoming spring semester to better learn the role and its responsibilities before the retirement of outgoing principal, John Highland. Superintendent Dr. Lee Rieck welcomes Dr. Cheng saying, "District 94 is fortunate to have such an impressive educator leading CHS next year. We are looking forward to working with Dr. Cheng and await his arrival with great anticipation."

This spring, a Tea will be held at the high school to provide an opportunity for school staff and community members to meet and welcome Community High School's new principal. Details will be forthcoming.
