Guthrie Guthrie New Principal at NCES

Henry County Public Schools (HCPS) is pleased to announce that Phillip Guthrie has accepted the position of principal at New Castle Elementary School (NCES) for the 2018-19 school year.

Guthrie, who has served as the assistant principal at Henry County Middle School (HCMS) for the past three years, began his teaching career in Henry County. He first completed his student teaching at HCMS, then taught freshmen algebra at Henry County High School (HCHS) for eight years.

“He is hands down the best math educator I’ve ever seen,” remarked outgoing NCES principal Austin Hunsaker, who taught alongside Guthrie at HCHS. “And I’m not exaggerating, one of the best people that I’ve ever worked with.”

Book Young Authors

Thanks to a local author and the efforts of Henry County High School junior English teachers and library media specialist Rachel Burgin, several HCHS students are now published authors.

Author Tony Acree worked with junior English classes to workshop the art of writing a short story. Students submitted their stories to the author, who selected 16 of them to publish through his own publishing company.

Congratulations to Brennen Fuchs, Seth Tingle, Audrey Litwora, Rebekah Huff, Emily Shrp, Alyssa Burns, Rosemary Head, Camryn McManis, Madison Padilla, Nikki Perkinson, Kierstin Prentice, Emily Wilson and Unging Sawasrak.

The book, "Tales from a Rural Route: Henry County," is available for sale on Amazon. Profits from the book will be donated back to HCHS.
