principal 300OHIO COUNTY, Ky. (7/10/13) - Dwayne Bishop was hired earlier last month as the new principal at Fordsville Elementary in Ohio County.

Bishop is a graduate of Ohio County High School. He received his undergraduate degree from Brescia University and his Masters degree from Western Kentucky University.
