COLLINSVILLE - There will be some new faces in Henry County schools next fall, with some familiar ones taking on different roles. The school board has approved recommendations made by Superintendent Jared Cotton and signed off on those appointments this week.
The first involves a new role for Charles Byrd, who currently serves as Magna Vista's athletic director and assistant principal. When the fall comes around, Byrd will be taking over as principal.
“I am excited to have this opportunity to continue to work with the Warrior community,” Byrd said in a statement. “Having been with many of these students since they were in the 6th grade, I have a vested interest in their academic success and personal growth. I look forward to working with the faculty and staff.”
In the past, Byrd has also served as an assistant principal on the middle school level, as well as the district's curriculum facilitator and a physical science teacher.
Taking over Byrd's old job as assistant principal will be Corbin Campbell. The current principal at Fieldale-Collinsville Middle School, Campbell has served in that position for three years. Before that, he was an assistant middle school principal and a high school drama teacher.
