(Fountain City, IN)--The Northeastern Elementary School Principal has resigned. The resignation of Matt Truesdell was accepted Wednesday night by the Northeastern Wayne School Board. Superintendent Laura Blessing has refused to return calls or respond to emails this week from Kicks 96 and 101.7 The Point News about Truesdell’s status and did not address details Wednesday night. But, by his own public admission on social media and to many of his supporters, Truesdell had an extramarital affair last year with the mother of one of the students at the school. Despite that, many parents had made efforts to get Truesdell reinstated after he was originally placed on leave. A new principal will be in place by the start of the next school year.
