“I look forward to this new opportunity to shape instruction throughout our district, visit the many classrooms of Hopkins County Schools and see our students in action,” Ashby said.
 
Ashby earned a bachelor’s degree in business education, master’s degree in secondary school guidance, Rank I in secondary guidance, principalship endorsement and professional certificate for school superintendent, all from Western Kentucky University.
 
She was part of the first cadre of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Principal Leadership Institute, member of the Kentucky Leadership Academy, and a presenter at the National Blue Ribbon Conference after Hanson was selected as a National Blue Ribbon School. She was 2005 Hopkins County Schools Administrator of the Year and Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce Educator of the Year, and a former member of the YMCA Board of Directors, and Leadership Madisonville/Hopkins County Board of Directors. She is also a member of Noon Kiwanis.
 
While Ashby officially will start her new role on July 1, she will also be spending time at MNHHS helping prepare for the start of the school year. The MNHHS principal position will be advertised.
