The Cobb County school board named three new principals for the upcoming school year.

When school begins in July, Hillgrove High, Lovinggood Middle and Belmont Hills Elementary schools will all have new leaders.

Ashley Campoli is slated to become the next principal of Belmont Hills. She will replace Bertha Nelson who was transferred to Acworth Elementary. Before arriving at Belmont Hills, Campoli had been an assistant principal at Varner, Kemp, McEachern, and Pope schools. She has a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from the University of Southern Mississippi.

Angela Stewart, who had been principal of Lovinggood Middle School, will become principal of Hillgrove High. She replaces Christian Suttle, who was appointed  assistant superintendent for the district.

In a letter on the school’s website, Stewart expressed her appreciation for her time at Lovinggood. “If your child is going to Hillgrove, I won’t be gone long and I will be waiting for you! I love my students and will miss this campus, student body and staff!” she wrote.

Stewart will be replaced at Lovinggood by Derrick Bailey. Bailey had been a teacher at Lovinggood, an administrator at Lindley 6th Grade Academy, and most recently, the assistant principal of Pine Mountain Middle School.

The school board named the new principals during its June 22 meeting.

Cobb principals must have a masters degree in educational leadership, a valid renewable Georgia Educational Leadership Certificate at level 5 or higher, and a minimum of six years of successful educational experience including three years of administrative experience.
