My name is Dr. Dara Hedgecock (or Dr. H), and I'm so excited to join the Midway family to serve students, parents, staff and the community as your Assistant Principal! I earned a Bachelor's Degree from High Point University in Psychology, a Master's Degree from NC A&T in Counselor Education, a Master's Degree from Gardner-Webb in School Administration, an Education Specialist Degree from UNCG in Educational Leadership and a Doctorate in Education from UNCG in Educational Leadership. I worked as a School Counselor for many years in WSFCS before becoming an Assistant Principal at Southwest Elementary in Lexington City Schools for five years. My chihuahua Yoda and I love to watch NY Rangers hockey, NY Yankees baseball, Dallas Cowboys football, and Duke Blue Devils everything! I love to watch and play tennis, read as much as I can, and I'm a graduate of Ledford High School.
At Midway, we are a TEAM, and I look forward to getting to know the students, staff and parents. You will see me in classroom often working with students and supporting teachers with their instruction. I LOVE to read, so I encourage and enjoy having students to come and read to me. It is so important to help students develop a love of reading in the elementary years, and I hope to support students in their reading journey!
