Hedgepeth leaving FHS, promoted to director of high schools
Successor yet to be named


Leader, professional, diplomat, innovator and friend are some of the words faculty members used to describe Farragut High School Principal Ed Hedgepeth.

After 14 years of service at FHS, Hedgepeth recently accepted a job in the Knox County School's Central Office as director of secondary school instruction.

While he will no longer be the school's on-site leader, Hedgepeth's new position will keep him very involved in the education of FHS students as well as every highschooler in the county. Hedgepeth will work closely with the leadership of all county high schools.


"I will spread my allegiance among all the high schools, but the apple of my eye will always be Farargut," Hedgepeth said.

Russ Oaks, the school board's director of communications, said Hedgepeth is "highly qualified" and "brings a wealth of experience and knowledge."

Oaks said Superintendent Charles Lindsey would first work from a roster of applicants to name Hedgepeth's replacement. The choice will be made "the sooner the better," he said, but stressed the importance of finding the right candidate.
