Scott Hopper
Mr. Scott Hopper,
Hello Star Families,
My name is Scott Hopper and I am excited to begin my first full year as the Principal at Forrest W. Hunt Elementary. It was so exciting joining the Star family last year and I look forward to working together to accomplish amazing things for all our students this year.
I am a Rutherford County native and I still live in Bostic.  My wife, Kristin, and I have two wonderful children, our 10-year-old son, Evan, and our 3-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.  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.
I am dedicated to providing the best opportunities for the students of Rutherford County and giving back to the school system and community that supported me.  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 student to have the best year possible.
