Mr. Ben White Named Cottondale Elementary Principal

  • On May 11, the Tuscaloosa County Board of Education approved the Superintendent’s recommendation of Mr. Ben White as Principal of Cottondale Elementary School, effective June 1. The vacancy was created by the retirement of Mrs. Cindy Montgomery, who served as Cottondale Elementary Principal for 12 years.

    Mr. White comes to Cottondale Elementary from Walker Elementary, where he served as Assistant Principal. Prior to that, Mr. White taught in Tennessee for nine years. Mr. White grew up in Centreville. He and his wife have three daughters.

    At Walker Elementary, Mr. White was involved in the school’s character education program, The RAMS Way. This year, Walker was named a National School of Character by Character.org. Mr. White is excited to join another school with a character education program. He also looks forward to working with the faculty and staff at Cottondale and becoming part of the community.
