Assistant Principal Simmons named as new SCHS principal

Following a called meeting of the Stephens County School Board held at 7:30 a.m. this morning, May 25, Stephens County High School Assistant Principal and Curriculum Director Jessica Simmons has been named as the new high school principal.

Simmons will step into the position after current Principal Michael Keown’s last day on June 30. Keown advised School Superintendent Dr. Connie Franklin and the school board in early May that he had been named the sole finalist for the Superintendent of Schools for Miller County Schools in Colquitt, and would be moving back to Miller County to take that position.
