Jo Ellen Hylton will serve as principal of Magna Vista High School for the 2021-2022 school year.
The Henry County School Board approved a recommendation from Schools Superintendent Sandy Strayer to fill one administrative position at their July meeting.
Hylton has supported students in Henry County as a teacher and administrator since 2007.
“I am honored and humbled to join the Warrior community. It has been my privilege to serve the students, staff, and families of Laurel Park Middle School for the last six years and I am excited about this new opportunity and journey,” she said.
“I look forward to continuing Magna Vista’s tradition of excellence as I work alongside this incredible faculty and staff to build life ready students. Together, we will provide a safe and supportive learning environment for all students and ensure that all students are provided with an engaging and positive educational experience,” Hylton added.
“I’m so pleased to have Mrs. Hylton join the Warrior team. Her focus on student growth and achievement and desire to support families as they collaborate to encourage students will ensure continued success at Magna Vista High School,” Strayer said.
