The assistant principal has taken over the top position at Alcorn Central High School.
That’s according to former principal Brandon Quinn who accepted the role of interim superintendent recently.
Quinn confirmed Matthew Young has stepped into the role of principal at ACHS. He will continue through June.
“Mr. Young, along with the entire staff at Central High School are very strong and will continue to move Alcorn Central forward throughout the year,” said Quinn.
Young has been assistant principal for one year. He previously held positions in the Tupelo city school district.
