Starkville Academy recently announced the hiring of Gary White as the school’s new elementary principal. White, who came to SA after serving as a middle school principal in Florida, began work at SA on Monday. White replaces Melanie Boyle, who served as elementary principal for a year at SA before stepping down. “We’re from here,” White said. “All of our family is here. We’re just glad to be back.”
White is originally from Maben. He went to Cumberland High School (now known as East Webster) before going to Mississippi State, where he received his bachelors and masters degrees.
