Cedar Creek School has announced the selection of Cindy Hampton as its permanent head of school. Hampton has been serving as interim head since October of 2021.

The school’s former assistant principal of academics, Hampton has been an educator for 39 years, the last 28 at Cedar Creek. She began her tenure at Cedar Creek as a science teacher, teaching physics, chemistry, and AP biology courses and was head of the science department before being named assistant principal in 2007.

“In her nearly 30 years at Cedar Creek, Mrs. Hampton has risen from teacher to assistant principal to interim head, ably proving her leadership skill to the entire school community,” Lomax Napper, president of Cedar Creek’s board of directors, said of Hampton’s selection.

Prior to coming to Cedar Creek, Hampton taught at Solomon Junior High School and St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Greenville, Mississippi, at Northside High School in Lafayette, and at Farmerville Junior High School and Farmerville High School in Union Parish.

She graduated from Oak Grove High School and attended the University of Louisiana-Monroe, ultimately earning a B.S. in Biology Education from the University of New Orleans and a M.S. in Biology Education from Delta State University.

“I am honored and humbled to be selected as Cedar Creek’s next head of school,” Hampton said. “I would like to thank the board for its confidence in me. I love our school community and am delighted to have the opportunity to continue to grow the school as its next leader.”

Hampton and her husband, Bruce, have been married 42 years and have two children and five grandchildren.
