An interim principal has been announced to lead Crestwood Elementary during the spring 2014 semester.
Superintendent Will Wells has named Diane Morgan to fill the role to lead the school until a new principal is named by the school's site-based decision making council.
Current principal Lori Wright is relocating to South Africa following her husband’s promotion as YUM! Restaurants International's Chief Development Officer for Africa.
Morgan retired last spring after 12 years as principal of Centerfield Elementary. She has 27 years of experience in education, including as a teacher and principal in Oldham and Carroll counties.
Morgan will serve as interim principal during the spring semester as the school’s SBDM engages in the principal selection process.
Morgan officially begins her interim role December 23. Prior to her official start date, Morgan will spend several days with Wright and the Crestwood school community.
Parents are encouraged to take advantage of opportunities to give input about the characteristics and priorities they expect from the school's next principal.
Meanwhile, Wright is excited about opportunities in Johannesburg, including volunteering with an outstanding charitable organization, KFC's "Add Hope" campaign. The charity provides meals to orphanages. The Wrights will likely be in South Africa for 3 to 5 years.
