hcsboard 300HOPKINS CO. (5/17/13) – A news release from Hopkins Co. School District officially announced the newly elected superintendent for Hopkins County School District. The formal meeting was held at the Hopkins County Board of Education this afternoon at 4:30 p.m. naming current deputy superintendent, Linda Zellich the official superintendent as of July 1, 2013. The release provided stated:

She has been the district’s deputy superintendent for the past four years, and previously served as assistant superintendent.

“I’m obviously excited and looking forward to the new challenges that come with this position,” Zellich said. “This is my community, and I want the district to do all we can to ensure our children’s success.”

Zellich started her career in education as an elementary school teacher in Hopkins County. She has also held positions with the district as director of instruction, grades 6-12; supervisor of school and community relations; director of special programs; and career education consultant.

She is a member of the Junior Achievement of Western Kentucky Executive Board, Madisonville Hopkins County Economic Development Corp. Board and Kentucky Association of School Administrators.

Zellich said she has discussed possible new initiatives with the Board of Education that she expects will get under way within the next few months.

“We will put a focus on students, families, employees and our community,” she said. “I want all of us to form a cohesive team. There is nothing this community can’t do if we work together.”

Phil Eason, search consultant for the Kentucky Association of School Administrators, said he was impressed by the professional approach and due diligence the board gave to each candidate recommended by the screening committee.

“It was obvious through the entire process that members of the screening committee and the board were motivated to find the individual who would be the best fit for the school district and community,” Eason said.

Board Chairman Randy Franklin said, “I am confident Mrs. Zellich will move this school district to a higher level. I believe her focus on student achievement will be evident by the implementation of her vision and goals related thereto. After a very comprehensive process, I believe she is the right person to move us forward."
