Hopkins County school board names new superintendent


Linda Zellich has been named the new superintendent of Hopkins County Schools, effective July 1.

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," says Zellich. "This is my community, and I want the district to do all we can to ensure our children's success."

Zellich says 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," says Zellich. "I want all of us to form a cohesive team. There is nothing the community can't do if we work together."

Board Chairman Randy Franklin says, "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."
