Snodgrass Selected HCCHS Principal

Snodgrass-Rick-2Rick SnodgrasHOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (6/16/14) — Rick Snodgrass has been named principal of Hopkins County Central High School.

For the past five years, he served as an assistant principal at the school.

“I’m just excited to have this opportunity,” Snodgrass said. “Through Mr. Burrough’s leadership, we’ve really come a long way in the past four years – from the bottom 5 percent to one of the top schools in the state.” He will succeed Tommy Burrough, who has accepted a position as district director of facilities.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge,” Snodgrass said. “We’ve got a great faculty, staff and student body. We just want to continue the improvement process.”

Snodgrass previously was a teacher and football coach at HCCHS, South Hopkins High School and Southern Academy in Greensboro, Ala. He is a member of the Kentucky Association of School Administrators and the Kentucky Football Coaches Association.

He earned his bachelor’s degree in health and physical education and his master’s degree in guidance, both from Western Kentucky University. He also received a Rank 1 in educational leadership from Murray State University. He and his wife, Patricia, have one daughter, Courtney.

Hopkins County Schools Superintendent Linda Zellich announced the selection Monday.

“I think it will be a seamless transition,” Zellich said. “He’s familiar with the turnaround process and the community. I think we’ll just keep moving forward.”
