COURTHOUSE – Casey Conger, assistant principal at Point O’View Elementary School, will be the next principal at Creeds Elementary School.

Conger will follow Robin Davenport, who is retiring

“She is a dynamic leader,” Superintendent Aaron Spence said during a break in Tuesday’s School Board meeting. “Her strength is in instruction, but she loves children, loves people.”

Spence said he was excited by the selection of Conger to lead the rural school.

“I think we’ve got a good one in Casey,” he said.

In addition to Conger’s family, Paulette France, principal at Point O’View Elementary, attended the School Board meeting.

“She’s great for culture and great for instruction,” France said. “She’s that perfect balance.”
