Mike Pope named Clinton’s Administrator of the Year

Mike Pope, principal of Lovett Elementary School, is Clinton Public School District’s 2013-14 Administrator of the Year. In March, the sixth-grade school’s roof was destroyed by baseball-sized hail, forcing students, faculty and staff to be relocated to another campus for the remainder of the school year. Despite this disruption, Clinton sixth-graders earned the highest state test scores of any other Mississippi school district’s sixth-graders in both math and language arts.
Pope is a 1995 graduate of Clinton High School. He holds a bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Delta State University, and a master’s degree in educational leadership and an educational specialist degree, both from Mississippi College.
Pope began his career in education in 2000 as a world history, honors world history and history of the ancient Middle East teacher at Clinton High School. He began serving as assistant principal at Clinton Junior High in 2006, and was named principal at Lovett in 2012.
Pope was chosen for the honor by other principals and assistant principals throughout the Clinton Public School District. As Administrator of the Year, he will go on to represent CPSD in the state Administrator of the Year recognition program hosted by the Mississippi Department of Education in the spring.
