The Lincoln County School District has named Andrew Redd as the new principal of West Lincoln Attendance Center, beginning with the 2023-2024 school year.

A long-time resident of the county, Redd previously worked in several capacities at West Lincoln, including teacher, coach and athletic director throughout 20 years, prior to his retirement in 2019.

“Mr. Redd brings a wealth of experience, combined with his decision-making abilities and heart for children makes him the perfect candidate to continue the tradition of academic success and excellence that West Lincoln Attendance Center is known for,” Superintendent David Martin said. “We are fortunate to have a valuable educator come back to the field of education from retirement to a place he calls home.”

A proud West Lincoln alum, Redd earned a bachelor of science degree in math education from Mississippi State University, and a master’s of science in school administration from Mississippi College. After retirement, he worked as director of the Berean Children’s Home in Lincoln County, and most recently as the principal at the Reading Nook Academy.

“I have always enjoyed being around children and working in the field of education, and look forward to helping West Lincoln continue the path of academic excellence it has provided for our students and our community,” Redd said.

Redd and his wife Camille are members of Johnson Grove Church of Christ. They have three grown daughters, all West Lincoln graduates — Micah Wood of Grenada, Makennah Savage of Starkville, and Maddox Redd, also of Starkville.
