Some county schools will see changes in administration
Galena, Potts Camp and Mary Reid schools will see changes in leadership with the 2020-2021 school year.
Adrianna Patton will be the new principal at Galena, Tana Miller at Potts Camp High School and Kasie Teel at Mary Reid School.
The changes take place due to hires at the Marshall County School District central office.
Angelique Archie is the new special education director for the district. She is moving from her previous position as principal at Galena.
"Mrs. Archie's experience and knowledge of school administration will be a great asset to the central office staff," said Roy Lawson, superintendent of education.
Patton will replace Archie as principal at Galena. Patton had served at Galena during the 2018-2019 school year before moving to Potts Camp for the 2019-2020 school year.
"During the interview process, Patton's instructional knowledge and understanding of the Galena community really stood out and made her the right choice for this position," Lawson said.
Billy Gray will also be moving to the central office from his job as principal at Potts Camp High School. He will be assisting the director of transportation and buildings and grounds supervisor.
"Mr. Gray has worked at three of our campuses previously, and his knowledge of the district will be an asset to me and the team as well," Lawson said.
Miller is moving from the Mary Reid Elementary School principal position to the top job at Potts Camp High School. "Mrs. Miller has served the Potts
Camp community for a number of years in different capacities and has done so very effectively," Lawson said. "We look forward to seeing what great things she has in store for the high school campus."
Teel will replace Miller as the principal at Mary Reid. Teel taught at Mary Reid before spending the last couple of years at Byhalia Elementary.
"Mrs. Teel was selected as the 20192020 Administrator of the Year in Marshall County, and the interview team believes we will see great things at Mary Reid under her leadership," Lawson said.
