The new leaders for Saddle Ridge Elementary and Middle School are already deep into planning for Aug. 27, the day the school opens.
Wendy Ingram, assistant principal at Rossville Middle School since 2006, will be principal at the new school, under construction in Rock Spring. Ingram was selected in January.
“Walker County is where I live and where my children go to school and so I have a vested interest here,” Ingram said. “We are going to be able to see kids grow from kindergarteners through eighth grade. It’s going to be amazing what we can do.”
