New Administrators for Reed Spring School District

Next year, the Reeds Spring School District will have a new principal at the Primary School and a new assistant principal at the Middle School.

The information below is from the Reeds Spring School District:

Mrs. Adria Simkins will take over as principal at Reeds Spring Primary School. The current principal, Karen Murray, will retire at the end of this school year. 

“Mrs. Simkins has been working and serving and leading with love for years,” said Superintendent Dr. Cody Hirschi. “Without a shadow of a doubt, Adria is the right person for the job.”

Simkins is currently the assistant principal at the Primary School. She has also served in the district as an instructional coach and classroom teacher. 

“I started my career as a kindergarten teacher and my heart has always been with our youngest learners,” Simkins said. “Serving the Reeds Spring School District as the Primary School principal is such an honor for me. I love this community, I am passionate about the work our district is committed to, and I consider it a privilege to serve our youngest little Wolves!”

Mr. Garet Nunan will take over as assistant principal at Reeds Spring Middle School. The current assistant principal, Kurt Stumpff, will retire at the end of this school year. 

“Garet brings leadership experience and a heart for students to this position,” said Middle School Principal Casey Carpenter. “During the interview process, his attention to detail and continual focus on positively impacting staff and students stood out. I am excited to add Garet to our family. He will be an asset at RSMS for many years to come!”

Nunan is currently the process coordinator at Ozark High School. He previously worked at Reeds Spring Schools as a special education teacher. 

"I am honored to be joining the team at Reeds Spring Middle School next school year,” Nunan said. “I am excited to integrate myself into the community and continue the district's stellar work of being committed to academic and personal excellence."

Simkins and Nunan will begin their new duties on July 1.
