Rural Hopkins County school district to choose new principal

Jun 11, 2012

COMO - The Como-Pickton Consolidated ISD board is expected to name a new High School principal at Monday evening's meeting.

The board will discuss the candidates during a closed-door executive session, and vote on the nominee back in open session. 

Penny Armstrong had been serving at the principal’s post before she was recently named the finalist for superintendent at the Yantis Independent School District. Current superintendent Harold Cowley is retiring. 

Armstrong, who earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degree from East Texas State University, had spent a majority of her career at Como-Pickton CISD, the last three as high school principal.
