Pleasant Home’s Jimmy Reeves has been hired as the new assistant principal and softball coach at Opp High School.

OCS superintendent Michael Smithart confirmed that Reeves accepted the positions this morning.

“First of all, our primary goal in this specific hire was to get an assistant principal,” Smithart said. “So, he’s hired in that capacity, and the bonus is that he is a highly successful softball coach.

“We’re excited to have somebody of coach Reeves’ experience and of his character come on board with us.”

Reeves was at PHS for 12 years before accepting the position at Opp.
