Riley steps down from Cedar Creek Board of Directors; Napper named new President

Cedar Creek’s Board of Directors sent out an email Friday afternoon to parents of school students to inform them that Paul Riley has stepped down from the school’s Board of Directors “in order to devote more time to business and personal matters.

“We are grateful for Paul’s service over the past years. We are pleased that Paul and his family will continue to be integral parts of the Cedar Creek Community,” the email read.

With Riley’s departure, Board member Lomax Napper has been selected as President by a unanimous vote of the Board today.

Napper grew up in Ruston and is a 1996 graduate of Cedar Creek High School. He earned his MBA from Louisiana Tech in 2001 and his MA in Education in 2002.

He and his family have strong Ruston ties to both Cedar Creek and Louisiana Tech University, including Napper’s role within the Marbury Companies.

Cedar Creek has seen quite the turnover in the past few months with the retirement of head of school Andy Yepson in October, the departure of Athletics Director and head football coach Matt Middleton earlier this month and today’s announcement of the departure of Riley as head of the Board.
