Marysville: MPHS principal leavingAndrew Frost, principal of Marysville Pilchuck High School, has taken a job as assistant principal of Gig Harbor High School.

Frost has served as principal at MPHS since 2010, and has been popular. When rumors flew earlier this year that he would be transferred to another school, students quickly launched a campaign in the school and on social media. Frost told the school at the time that he was staying on this fall.
