James T. Alton will head into the new school year under new interim principal Jennifer Lewis. Previous principal Kevin Estes resigned late last month to become the new chief academic officer for Ballard County Schools.
Lewis brings prior experience with the Hardin County schools including more than 11 years as the principal at Lincoln Trail Elementary. She also taught at Bluegrass Middle School, and was the principal at G.C. Burkhead.
Mrs. Lewis will serve in the interim role until Hardin County Schools Superintendent Teresa Morgan can meet with the school’s Site-based Decision Making Council.
