Administrative position filled Thursday


Karen Jackson (bottom left), interim director of the New College Institute, and others, joined former governor Terry McAuliffe (bottom right), for a virtual conversation on Feb. 4 about his plan to make Virginia the best state in the nation for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Healthcare (STEM-H), and computer science and computation thinking (CS & CT) education.

The School Board of Henry County approved a recommendation from the superintendent to fill one administrative position at their February 4 meeting. 

Renee Scott will be principal at Meadow View Elementary School for the 2021-2022 school year. 

Scott, who currently serves as principal of Rich Acres Elementary School, previously served HCPS students as an assistant principal and teacher. 

“While I am grateful to have been able to serve the students, staff, and families of Rich Acres Elementary School for the last six years, I am honored and excited to join the Meadow View Elementary community in the fall. I look forward to working with the talented staff to cultivate relationships, facilitate engaging and rigorous learning opportunities, and provide each child with a nurturing, high quality educational experience.”

Judy Edmonds, currently principal at the school, will join the staff of Bassett High School to lead the Teachers for Tomorrow program. The appointment was approved by the School Board after reconvening from closed session. 

Scott’s “instructional leadership will continue to guide the students of Meadow View to academic growth and success as well as in their daily demonstration of the Wildcat Ways,” Schools Superintendent Sandy Strayer said.
