Abercrombie gets middle school post
MINGO JUNCTION — Indian Creek Middle School has a new administrator on board. Scott Abercrombie has been named the new assistant principal.
A Weirton resident, Abercrombie received a one-year contract during the Aug. 15 Indian Creek school board meeting and succeeds Ryan Finley, who took a post in West Virginia. His duties entail helping Principal Holly Minch-Hick oversee an estimated 650 students in grades five through eight, and he was eager to begin his new role.
“This has been a very positive experience,” Abercrombie said. “I am overwhelmed with the kindness from the administration and staff. I am transitioning to the new role quickly and look forward to serving the Indian Creek community.”
He is a graduate of Brooke High School and West Liberty University and his family includes his wife, Jennifer; children, Mark, Ryan, Sydney, Emma and Nathan; and grandchildren Selah, Annalise and Levi.
Abercrombie previously served as a seventh-grade science teacher at Follansbee Middle School, assistant principal at Brooke High School and as director of career technical and adult education and secondary curriculum for Brooke County Schools. He said his goal is to use his experience as a resource for both parents and students at the middle school.
“I would like to thank Indian Creek administration for the opportunity and look forward to meeting the students and parents that we serve at the middle school,” he said.
