Fannindel HS principal prepares for first day

Ladonia – With the start of the new semester at Fannindel High School comes a new start for Robert Milton, the school's new principal.

Milton was named to the position earlier this summer to replace Brett Williams. He began his duties July 19.

Monday's first day of class at Fannidel High will mark the first time in 20 years that Milton will be leading a school not in Honey Grove, where he spend two decades as middle school principal.

But Milton is no stranger to Fannindel, where he graduated in 1975. He also earned a Master's degree and principal and superintendent certificate from East Texas State University in 1978.
