Assistant Superintendent Announced for Hopkins County School System

hcs ashbyHOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (6/25/13) – DeDe Ashby has been selected as Assistant Superintendent of Instruction for Hopkins County Schools.
 
For the past four years, Ashby served as Principal of Madisonville North Hopkins High School.
 
“I embrace this opportunity with great enthusiasm and excitement for the journey ahead.

Ashby has worked in Hopkins County Schools for 21 years. Positions have included director of secondary instruction, Hanson Elementary School principal, MNHHS assistant principal and guidance counselor, and business/marketing teacher at South Hopkins High School.
 
“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.
