Haidee Shiflet Napier ’88 was named the new division superintendent of Colonial Heights Public Schools by the Colonial Heights School Board, effective July 1, 2023. She had been the division’s interim director of curriculum and assessment prior to the appointment.
Napier has worked in the district 34 years in roles ranging from teacher to coach to assistant superintendent, but her experience in the Colonial Heights schools reaches back even further—starting with elementary school and continuing through her graduation from Colonial Heights High School.
