Newton Price

Newton Hosmer Price (born c. 1885 in Valley Head, Dekalb County) was principal of West End High School from 1930 to 1956.

Before taking over the newly-opened high school, Price served as principal of Elyton, Hemphill and Lee Elementary Schools.

After he retired to a farm near Meridian, Mississippi, the newly-build Price Elementary School was named in his honor.
