Mrs. Adria Simkins will take over as principal at Reeds Spring Primary School at the start of 2023-2024 school year. The current principal, Karen Murray, will retire at the end of this school year. 

“Mrs. Simkins has been working and serving and leading with love for years,” said Superintendent Dr. Cody Hirschi. “Without a shadow of a doubt, Adria is the right person for the job.”

Simkins is currently the assistant principal at the Primary School. She has also served in the district as an instructional coach and classroom teacher. 

“I started my career as a kindergarten teacher and my heart has always been with our youngest learners,” Simkins said. “Serving the Reeds Spring School District as the Primary School principal is such an honor for me. I love this community, I am passionate about the work our district is committed to, and I consider it a privilege to serve our youngest little Wolves!”

Simkins will begin her new duties on July 1.
