Brooksville, Florida -- "This is your principal Principal Nick Cannon and we're about to wow out!"

Superstar Nick Cannon made the announcement, letting Hernando High School know he was now in charge.

Hernando High students screamed as Cannon made his entrance on Tuesday morning. Cannon first had a meet-and-greet with students who were unable to come to his later assembly by signing autographs and taking pictures.

Cannon loves to give back to young people.

"Youth empowerment. More than anything, that's kind of what it is all about, but then ultimately to have a good time, embrace yourself and be happy," says Cannon.

Cannon then took some Q&A from a journalism class, where he showed a humble side of his personality. Cannon came to Hernando High after the school won a Wild 94.1 takeover contest.

"Hernando lapped anyone else in the contest. It's just their enthusiasm and how much excitement the generated in their community," explains Cannon.

"Let's go!" says Cannon into the microphone during the grand finale a full DJ party for 1,300 Hernando High students. One thing for sure this school has never had a principal like Nick Cannon.
