A new principal has been named for Thrasher following the resignation last week of principal Rivers Stroup.
Prentiss County School District Superintendent Randle Downs said the district's board of education voted last Thursday to appoint Jason Potts as principal of the K-12 school in the southwestern part of the county. Potts previously served as special education instructor at Wheeler school.
Stroup, who has been waging a long battle against esophageal cancer, submitted his formal resignation last Wednesday, said Downs.
Stroup previously served as assistant superintendent of the Alcorn County School District and also held the post of principal at Alcorn Central High School.
