Assistant Principal's Page



My name is Dr. Dara Hedgecock (or Dr. H), and I'm so excited to return to 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 proud Panther graduate of Ledford High School.


At Midway, we are a TEAM, and I look forward to working with 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!
