Two new principals are taking over schools in the Madison County school system.
The Madison County Board of Education on Thursday named Haley James principal at Riverton Elementary School and Jennifer West principal at Riverton Intermediate School.
Here’s information on both provided by the school system:

She’s a graduate of UNA and holds a master’s degree from the University of Alabama. James is a 20-year resident of Madison County, where she resides with her husband and her two children

They each bring a wealth of experience and education to our system. They are committed educators who will challenge teachers and students to do their best.”
