Hopewell City Public Schools Announce New Leaders | Schools
The Hopewell City Public School Board recently approved the appointment of two key employees in the division for next year. The board appointed Dr. Kim F. Evans as the division's new Assistant Superintendent for Instruction. They also selected Dr. Rodney L. Berry to fill the Principal position at Hopewell High School.
“We were very fortunate to have an outstanding pool of applicants to choose from for these two critically important positions,” said Dr. John A. Fahey, Superintendent of Schools. “Both candidates have a wealth of experience that will be instrumental in their new assignments.”
Dr. Evans was most recently the Assistant Superintendent of Instruction for Mecklenburg County Public Schools. Her prior experience includes work in Colonial Heights Public Schools. There she served as the Principal of Colonial Heights Middle School and Lakeview Elementary, as well as the Assistant Principal of Colonial Heights High School. She received her masters and doctorate degrees at Virginia State University.
Dr. Berry earned his doctorate at Virginia Commonwealth University. He has worked in both the Caroline and Henrico County Public School divisions as a high school Assistant Principal before working in Franklin City Public Schools. There he served as Principal of both J.P. King Middle School and at his most-recent position at Franklin High School.
Evans and Berry both began their new duties in early July.
