Posted on 05/31/2019
HCCSC is pleased to announce Mr. Chris Baut as the new principal at Horace Mann, and Mr. Rief Gilg as the new principal at Huntington North High School.Huntington County Community School Corporation is pleased to announce two new administrators for our district.



Mr. Chris Baut has been named as the new principal at Horace Mann Elementary. Mr. Baut has served as the Assistant Principal and Athletic Director at Riverview Middle School for the past two years. 

Mr. Baut earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Trine University and his Master of Education (MEd) Degree from Indiana University. 

“Mr. Chris Baut has been in education for the past 13 years, during which he has served as a special education teacher, instructional coach, coach, and administrator. He made a very strong impression on those he worked with at Riverview, due to his positive attitude and work ethic. You would never find Chris in his office, as he was either in a classroom or in the hallways with a student or teacher. We believe his strong work ethic and experiences will help him lead Horace Mann in a positive direction for the students, parents, and employees,” stated Superintendent Chad Daugherty. 



Mr. Rief Gilg has been named as the new principal at Huntington North High School. 

Mr. Gilg returns to HNHS having previously served as a teacher, administrator, and coach for nine years (2003-2012). He most recently held the title of Associate Principal at DeKalb High School. 

Mr. Gilg earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Mount Union College, and his Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from Ball State University. 

“Mr. Rief Gilg is known by many Huntington parents, teachers, and former students, as he was a teacher, coach, and administrator at Huntington North for 9 years. Also, he brings successful administrative experiences serving as the athletic director and assistant principal at East Noble, and now currently serves as an assistant principal at Dekalb HS. Mr. Gilg went through an extensive interview process that involved students, parents, teachers, and administrators. We believe Rief has the skillset and experiences necessary to lead HNHS to a high standard of performance,” stated Superintendent Chad Daugherty.
