Ruletta Hughes, Principal

  • I am Ruletta Hughes, the Principal of Lucy S. Herring Elementary School. I am happy to be a part of the Lucy S. Herring community. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve our students, staff, and families. My passion is to help people to grow.  I believe that everyone in our school has the capacity for growth. I'm looking forward to being a part of that journey.

    I am originally from Edenton, North Carolina.  I did my undergraduate work at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After completing my undergraduate degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I moved to Asheville in 1992. I completed my masters degree at East Tennessee State University. I taught music at Isaac Dickson for over fifteen years and served as an Assistant Principal there for three years. For the past two years I served as the testing coordinator and Assistant Principal at Asheville Middle School. I am married to Jerome Hughes and have two sons who work in Charlotte, North Carolina.  

    We are so glad to have you here at Lucy S. Herring Elementary School. I'm looking forward to growing with you!
