Meet Our Team

Mr. Richard Bryant


Prior to coming to Fifth Street, I taught Social Studies and Language Arts at Armstrong Middle School in Starkville, Cypress Fairbanks High School in Houston, Texas, and West Point Junior High School. I attended Okolona High School, Itawamba Community College, and Mississippi State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees.

I consider it a privilege to serve in the West Point Consolidated School District and as principal at Fifth Street School. I look forward to working with our students, parents, teachers and all of the Fifth Street family to help our students be successful.

Mrs. Lucy McKellar

Assistant Principal

Prior to working at Fifth Street, I worked Columbus Middle School. I taught math for three years at Fifth Street before moving to the Assistant Principal position. I love working with middle school students, and I look forward to an exciting year full of learning and adventure!
