Mr. Scott Hopper, Principal
Hello Star Families,
My name is Scott Hopper and I am the new Principal at Forrest W. Hunt Elementary. I am so excited to be joining the Star family and to be a part of the amazing things happening here.
I am a Rutherford County native and recently finished building a home in Bostic. My wife, Kristin, and I have two wonderful children, our 9-year-old son, Evan, and our 2-year-old daughter, Emilia. I have served as a high school math teacher and high school assistant principal over the last 12 years in Rutherford County. My family is no stranger to Forrest Hunt as my wife has taught here for the last 12 years and my son is currently in 4th grade at FHES.
I am a huge fan of fantasy and science fiction novels, though I find myself constantly rereading the same ones. I am also a modern board game enthusiast and enjoy the shared experience of problem-solving in board games.
As a product of Rutherford County Schools, I know the amazing opportunities that our schools have to offer. I am excited to work within this community to encourage and prepare our students for productive futures. I look forward to building relationships with you and your students in the coming months.
