New principal named for WC Middle School

J-E News Editor
Last week Webster County Interim Superintendent Pete Galloway introduced the board to the person who will lead the new Webster County Middle School (WCMS) once it opens for classes in August.
Cyndi Boggs, a longtime educator will come to the district from nearby Hopkins County School District, where she is currently serving as a fourth grade teacher at Pride Avenue Elementary. She has also worked as a part time Adjunct Instructor at Murray State University’s Madisonville campus since 2000.

“I’m greatly excited about this opportunity,” Boggs said. “We are ready to open the new school with enthusiasm and an excitement for student learning.”
Late last week she had the opportunity to meet with her staff for the first time. It was also the first time most of the middle school teachers had ever come together as a group.
“I am thrilled by what I saw happening with our teachers and staff the other day,” she said, noting that they all seemed to share an excitement for things to come.
Boggs’ vision for the future of WCMS might surprise some, but it is sure to continue generating excitement across the district.
“We’re going to construct an environment where students value learning,” she said. “If I can leave any thumbprint on the school at all, it will be WCMS becoming known as an arts and humanities school. You’re eventually going to see a choir and a strong band. All of the things our public schools have been doing away with. We have kids that need and deserve that.”
Boggs has spent most of her 18 year education career in Hopkins County Schools. She started as a classroom teacher at Pride Elementary School in 1996. From 2001 to 2003 she served a s District Resource Teacher in Hopkins County.
She became an administrator in 2003, taking over as the principal of Greenville Elementary School in Muhlenberg County and then spent the 2006-2007 school year in the same position at Jefferson Elementary School in Henderson. 
She returned to the classroom in 2008, spending three years as a teacher at Pride Avenue before becoming Assistant Principal at West Hopkins for the 2011-2012 school year. She has been in the classroom since.
She is a graduate of West Hopkins High School.
Boggs will fill the first of three vacancies for Webster County principals. The search is ongoing for new principals at Sebree Elementary and Webster County High School.
She replaces principal Geoff Bailey who resigned late in the school year.
