Meet Our Assistant Principal

Assistant Principal

Cynthia Newman

Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! I am very grateful to be a part of the Hominy Valley Elementary community. The staff, students, and families are so warm and welcoming. This school demonstrates their commitment to the SPORT motto daily. It is evident in the ways students and staff show respect and care for each other. Hominy Valley is known for having the highest academic and behavioral expectations for their students. I am working closely with Mrs. Yates and the staff to promote those high standards so all students become lifelong learners.

I retired from Assistant Principal at Sand Hill-Venable in June 2019. Before that time, I was a Lead Title 1 Reading Specialist and Exceptional Children's teacher. My husband and I have 2 grown sons and 2 wonderful daughter-in-laws. We also have 2 wonderful grandchildren-Gray and Mila. They live in Texas so we do not get to see them nearly enough!! I enjoy walking outside, reading a good book sitting on the beach and playing with our Bernedoodle, Maggie.

Please feel free to contact me at (828) 665-0619 or [email protected] if I can assist you in any way.
