“Barksdale brings a wealth of experience to our school. As a K-12 principal, she is well versed in all areas of school administration. She will be a tremendous asset to our team,” HHHS Principal Don Hulin said.
“My duties at Hoover High School will vary this semester. I will be learning the system and helping in all areas,” Barksdale said. “I am very excited about working in a large school and also being in a 9-12 environment. HHS is a great school and I am very honored to be a part of the team. “
