“Jan Richey, having served as an assistant principal at South Hopkins Middle School for seven years, certainly knows the faculty, staff and community – but especially the students,” said Hopkins County Schools Superintendent Deanna Ashby. “She has a deep love for the school and its traditions. I know she will give 110 percent to continuing the school pride and warm culture.”
