Virgil Jones is the new ninth grade coordinator at Rosemount High School. He replaced Pete Roback.

For new assistant principal, a risk worth taking


There was an element of risk involved when Virgil Jones took a job at Rosemount High School. He was leaving a job he liked — one he'd held for nine years — at Gustavus Adolphus College. He was moving from the college level to a high school. And he was taking a job that might not even be available two years from now.

He doesn't seem to have any regret, though. He likes where he is.
