In the days following the announcement that West Point Independent Schools would be discussing entering into negotiations with Hardin County Schools for the purpose of a merger, interim superintendent Sally Sugg discussed some of the difficulties she sees members of the district facing as talks proceed. Sugg predicts that adults in the community will have the most trouble with a transition, considering how much history people in the community have with the school, as some families go back multiple generations of attending West Point. However, Sugg is confident that the students are resilient and strong enough to make the transition without much difficulty. The next board meeting for the district will be held on January 28th, and the public is invited to attend.
