“We are looking forward to a wonderful year.  Our students, parents, and staff make Scott County Ninth Grade School a special place.  I am honored to take the reins.  We are working diligently to help the Class of 2019 reach their highest potential,” Tippins commented on her new position and goals for the coming year.
