Terran NewmanSouth Salem Elementary school students and staff bade a fond farewell to Mrs. Terran Newman before leaving for winter break in December as the principal announced that she would be retiring after serving more than thirty years in education. Newman taught fourth and fifth grade for 22 years then served five years as assistant principal at South Salem. She then served another five years in the principal position before announcing her retirement in December.

“I will greatly miss my South Salem family,” said Newman. “I have had the privilege of watching the students grow and succeed and I thank everyone for allowing me to be a part of their lives for ten years. It has been the highlight of my career.”

According to Samantha Fuhrey, superintendent of the Newton County School System, assistant principal Jeffery Hughes, will serve as interim principal until the position is filled.

Fuhrey added, “Mrs. Newman has served the students, staff, and the entire South Salem family well during her ten years at the school. We will miss her dearly but we wish her well as she transitions to her much deserved retirement.”
