Meet Scott Hooper
Stopher, Substitute Principal
Hello Stopher Families!!!
I am Scott Hooper, and I will be serving you as your substitute administrator for the next few weeks during Dr. Owens’ leave. I am indeed excited to be a part of the Stopher family! Actually – I’ve been in the Stopher family many years as my two sons were students here when the school opened in 2007. My family moved to Louisville in 2007 from our farm in far west Kentucky. My wife (Stephanie) and I met in high school and have been married 32 years. We have two sons – Hayden (23 years old) and Holden (20). Hayden graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2020 and serves as a News Producer at a TV station in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. Holden is a junior computer engineering major at UK.
I retired from JCPS in January 2020 after 32 years in education. I served as an elementary principal for almost 20 years in west Kentucky and JCPS, retiring as an administrator in the central office. In JCPS, I was privileged to be the principal of Waller-Williams Environmental and Jeffersontown Elementary. When promoted to a central office position in 2015, I so missed walking into my school every morning! You will find I am passionate about the success of students and to obtain that success, I know great collaboration between the school and families is essential. I am truly proud to be a part of this wonderful school and happy support you in any way I can. Please do not hesitate to reach out. I look forward to meeting you and I know we are going to have a FANTASTIC 2021-2022 school year!
