West Point Independent has a new leader. Sally Sugg was hired Thursday as the school district’s interim superintendent during a West Point Board of Education meeting.
Sugg, of Henderson, said she wants to focus on providing the district leadership and supporting the district’s staff and students.
Sugg’s tentative start date is next week.
Her previous experience includes principal of Henderson County High School and various positions within the Kentucky Department of Education.
West Point Board of Education Chairman Eddie Moore said Sugg was a “shining star.”
“She’s a very highly qualified person,” he said. “She’s going to be able to lead us in the right direction.”
