Loy Norrix principal on leave following sexual harassment lawsuit

KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- The principal of Loy Norrix High School has been placed on paid administrative leave.

The move to put Principal Rodney Prewitt on leave follows a report of a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him in 2016 by a former counselor at the high school. She alleges that Prewitt made unwanted sexual advances towards her following a brief romantic relationship and passed her up for a promotion.

Alex Lee, a spokesman for Kalamazoo Public Schools, told FOX 17 that Johnny Edwards, the current Director of Secondary Education and the former principal of Loy Norrix High School, will serve as the interim principal.
