New Principal at DHS
Ricky Pate, the former assistant principal at Cordova is the new principal at Dora High School and Roy Martin from Martin school is the assistant principal.
The turnout at the Walker County Board of Education was substantial at the meeting on Thursday. The Dora contingent went to support the selection of Dr. Dennis Willingham, but that was not to be. Dr. Sanford nominated Willingham and Dustin Beaty made the motion to for him, but only one other member voted for Willingham. Without the support of other board members, Willingham was not selected.
Dr. Sanford then recommended Ricky Pate and the board selected him for the job. The paper said that the crowd was upset at this move and the board chair had to rap the gavel to quite the crowd.
O ne resident, Bruce Travis got on the agenda and spoke on Willingham's behalf, but to no avail.
I really don't know much about Mr. Pate or Mr. Martin but I will do my best over the next few days to contact them for an interview so that people of the community can get to know them.
