River Ridge Academy’s McCulloch named
finalist for prestigious statewide recognition


BEAUFORT – The principal of River Ridge Academy has been named a finalist for 2017 state Principal of the Year honors.

Gary McCulloch, principal at River Ridge since the PreK-8 school opened in August 2015, is being considered for the statewide recognition by the South Carolina School Administrators Association, a professional organization that represents school administrators from all grade levels.  Each year SCASA honors principals at the elementary, middle and high school levels.  McCulloch is a finalist in the middle-level category.

McCulloch and the other finalists will be interviewed by teams of business leaders, educators and community members.  SCASA will announce the winners in each of the three classifications next month.

Prior to becoming principal at River Ridge Academy in Bluffton, McCulloch served as principal at Beaufort Elementary School.

“I’m sure Gary will represent our district well in the statewide SCASA competition,” said Superintendent Jeff Moss.  “He’s done a terrific job here, first at Beaufort Elementary and now at River Ridge.”
