Sammy Fudge has been named by the Roanoke County School Board as the new principal at Hidden Valley Middle School, effective July 1. Fudge replaces Mike Riley who was named the new director of secondary instruction earlier this year.
Fudge, who currently is serving as a principal in Georgia, has nineteen years of administrative experience, mostly in New Kent Co. Schools and Williamsburg/James City County Schools. Fudge was named the teacher of the year in Hampton City schools, where he taught middle school for seventeen years.
Fudge holds a Bachelor’s degree from Eastern Oregon University, a Master’s in Teaching from Regent University and a Certification of Advanced Graduate Studies in Educational Leadership from Regent University. He has completed doctoral classes at William & Mary.
“Sammy will be a great instructional leader at Hidden Valley Middle School,” said Dr. Ken Nicely, superintendent of Roanoke County Public Schools. “Most of his teaching and administrative experience is at the middle school level and I’m confident his expertise will help Hidden Valley Middle continue to be a top-performing middle school,” Dr. Nicely said.
