A former Corinth High School teacher is now employed at McNairy Central High School.
Candida Hancock was previously a math teacher at CHS for five years.
Hancock was featured this month in the McNairy Central High School student newspaper PawPrint. The article said she accepted a position at MCHS after a retirement created an opening in the math department.
The article adds that Hancock is a graduate of Alcorn Central High School and will teach geometry and algebra II at MCHS.
Hancock is quoted in the article, saying, “I was a big nerd in high school. I loved participating in academic and math competitions, and I was involved in many different clubs.”
She also said in the article that she hopes to make a positive impact on students at McNairy Central High School.
“What I love most about MCHS is the sense of community you feel when you walk in the doors,” Hancock said in the PawPrint article. “I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and guidance that I have received from the students and coworkers.”
The Corinth High School website actually still lists Hancock as a math teacher at CHS. Corinth School District officials said the website needs to be updated and that Hancock is no longer at CHS.
