Director of Pupil Personnel Hopey Newkirk

Hopey is an experienced educator of 33 years.  She began as a classroom teacher and has since served as a middle school Guidance counselor, middle school principal, Director of Pupil Personnel and Director of Alternative Services.  She firmly believes that all students must feel a connection to school in order to be successful.  Each child brings a unique experience to the educational setting, and as educators, we must understand and value that experience.


Hopey is married to her husband Tommy Newkirk, and will celebrate 33 years of marriage this August.  Together they have one adult son, (Tom) and a daughter in law (Jenna).  They reside and work in Mt. Sterling. (They also have a beloved golden retriever named Callie!) They are members of the First Baptist Church in Mt. Sterling.


Both Hopey and Tommy are avid distance runners and have qualified to run the 2016 Boston Marathon, (her 6th Boston marathon).  Together they coach the boys' and girls' Cross Country teams at Montgomery County Schools.
