School History

  • We are honored to have our school named for Cecile Waterman Essrig, an outstanding educational leader. Mrs. Essrig was the first woman elected to serve on the Hillsborough County School Board in 1967. A native of Tampa, she was educated in Hillsborough County public schools and graduated from Sweetbriar College in Virginia with a degree in government and economics. Graduate study at the University of Pennsylvania helped to prepare her to be an effective member of the school board.
