New faces at Huntington mostly teachers

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, August 1, 2000

FERRIDAY, La. – Huntington Principal Warren Enterkin is used to seeing lots of new faces each fall, but they are usually on students, not teachers.

When Huntington School begins its 2000-01 school year Aug. 14, half of its 20 faculty members will be new, Enterkin said.

&uot;Although I’m new to this school myself, I’d say that’s a pretty high number,&uot;&160;said Enterkin, who was appointed as principal in early July.

&uot;Some of those who left the school had to move because their spouses took jobs outside the Miss-Lou.&uot;

Others had been with the school several years and left to pursue other career opportunities, Enterkin said. He added that the school’s Board of Directors has been working since last May to staff the school.

Besides Enterkin himself, new faculty members will include:
