April 30--  A young man with small town roots and big city school experience is the new principal at Montgomery County Middle School.

Monday night the Montgomery County school board hired the assistant principal at Jenkins High School in Savannah.  Marcus Scott grew up in Ludowici and credits his Dad for instilling in him the importance of education.

"I was the first one in my family to graduate from high school and go on to college.  I believe it's because of my Dad motivating me and that's what I want to do with other kids," he said.

His goal in his new job is "to make sure that students are excelling academically and to work with parents and the community as much as possible," Scott said.

The new principal has been in education for eleven years and hopes experience gained elsewhere will help him with his new job.

"Jenkins is a lot bigger school, but I think some of the stuff I learned there I can bring here.  I'm looking forward to meeting the people of Montgomery County," he said.

Scott starts his job July 1.
