Darren Doyle, story:
Superintendent of Edmonson County Schools Brian Alexander has announced Jarad McReynolds as the newly named principal at the Edmonson County 5/6 Center. The announcement came earlier this afternoon.
“The Edmonson County School District began its search for a new principal with the departure of Chad Johnston," Alexander said. "Four quality people applied for the principal position and after interviews, deliberation, and consultation with the Edmonson County 5/6 Center SBDM Council, Jarad McReynolds was chosen as the new principal."
Mr. McReynolds had previously taught at the 5/6 Center for three years as a math teacher before moving to his most recent position at South Edmonson.
Mr. McReynolds said he feels that the best students and educators are in Edmonson County, and he looks forward to continuing to work with them.
"I have a passion for helping students reach their full potential and am excited to see the growth in our students at the 5/6 Center," he said. "I would like to thank Mr. Alexander and the site-based committee for giving me the opportunity to lead alongside our great students and staff.”
McReynolds lives in the Chalybeate community with his wife, Lauren and their two children--soon to be three, with one on the way. He is a 2007 graduate of Edmonson County High School.
His father, Gary McReynolds, is a former principal of the EC 5/6 Center.
"We are excited to have Jarad in this position and look forward to great things under his leadership at the 5/6 Center," Mr. Alexander added.
