There’s a familiar face back in York City schools.
Brandon Hufnagel was an assistant superintendent when he left the York City School District in 2011 to become superintendent of the Warren County School District. He resigned there in early 2013, and just this week, he was appointed acting assistant principal at William Penn Senior High School.
The Warren Times Observer reported in February 2013 that Hufnagel resigned there, citing a need to return to the York area to be with his family.
A month later, the paper reported that shortly before he left, Hufnagel mistakenly used his district credit card for $5,875 in charges at a casino. The story said he repaid the money once the mistake was discovered, and the school board there said he wasn’t forced to leave.
Hufnagel declined to comment on that. He still does consulting work for the Warren County School District, he said, and left on good terms.
He said he does not have a district credit card in York.
He loves being back in the city district, he said, adding that while in Warren County he sometimes helped teachers or principals here.
“I never really left York,” he said.
Supt. Eric Holmes confirmed Hufnagel is working at the high school but declined to comment on anything personnel-related.
