The new superintendent of the Troy City Schools will meet with members of the public during a reception on Tuesday.

The Troy City Schools Education Foundation is hosting the public reception for Lee Hicks from 5:30 to 7;30 p.m. at the Arboretum on the Troy University campus.

“We think it’s important that the community have an opportunity to meet Mr. Hicks and to get to know the man the school board has selected to lead our city schools,” said Steven Curtis, president of the Foundation.

“We encourage everyone to come out – business leaders, government leaders, parents, faculty, staff … everyone should have an interest in our city’s schools.”

Hicks was hired in June to replace Dr. Linda Felton-Smith, who stepped aside in Febraury.

Hicks was previously the principal at Prattville High School and has been on the job for approximately two weeks with Troy.

“The reception is free and open to the public, so we expect a large turnout to meet Mr. Hicks,” Curtis said.
