Harvey Means named ECHS principal, replaces Carl Raley

By Staff
The Escambia County Board of Education unanimously selected Lowndes County native Harvey Means to replace interim Carl Raley as the principal of Escambia County High School during its meeting at W.S. Neal Elementary School Thursday afternoon.
Raley, a native of Atmore, was one of the four other applicants for the position and was joined by current ECHS assistant principal Linda Shufford.
The board selected Means, who has been a principal for seven years, at the recommendation of a selection committee whose members were chosen by the board and superintendent Billy Hines. Hines refused to release the process by which the members of the committee were selected, the names of those members and the formula they used to determine their recommendation when question by the Atmore Advance.
Means' employment with the Escambia County School system begins June 1, 2008.
