Brett Darby named Abbeville High principal

Abbeville High School has another new principal.
On May 28, the Abbeville Meridional announced that the new principal at Abbeville High would be Milton “Mickie” Fabre, the former Morgan City High School principal.
Fabre toured the AHS campus last week with outgoing principal Dr. Janet Guerrini.
A few days later, Fabre decided not to come to Abbeville High and withdrew his name.
The Meridional attempted to contact Fabre as to why he did not take the job but got no response.
