New principal at Sparks High School ready to expose potential

Kevin Carroll isn’t afraid to give a great student a B.

Carroll, who takes over as Sparks High School principal when school starts Aug. 12, still remembers a ninth-grade honors student giving him a hard time about the B.

It was the only B in the student’s entire high school career.

“He used to continually remind me that I was the only teacher to give him a B,” said Carroll, who also coached the boy in track and field during high school.
