A new school year brings many changes, and we are excited about the ones we have to announce for this school year. Please join us in welcoming our new principals at Kenwood Station Elementary, Goshen Elementary, Locust Grove Elementary, and Oldham County High School.
The Kenwood Station Elementary SBDM has selected Katie Garrett to lead the school as their next principal. A familiar face to the Kenwood family, Garrett has served as the assistant principal since 2015. She looks forward to continuing the mission to make Kenwood Station a place where leaders are born.
“In the last four years, I have worked closely with Mr. Davis and the incredible leadership team to align our vision and set goals to shape Kenwood in to an amazing, student-centered school,” Garrett said. “We have worked to develop a strong culture, making Kenwood a place where students and staff are happy to spend their days.”
The Goshen Elementary SBDM council has unanimously selected Ryan Rodosky to replace retiring principal, Lisa Peters. Rodosky has served 14 years as an educator. He most recently served as principal of the Frederick L. Olmstead Academy North in Jefferson County where he created a STEAM academy to expand creative and cutting-edge opportunities for students.
The Locust Grove Elementary SBDM has selected Austin Collins as the next leader of their school. Collins has been assistant principal of Locust Grove since July 2015. Prior to Locust Grove, Collins served as a special education teacher at Middletown Elementary and Rock Creek Community Academy.
“As principal, it is my goal to continue to put students first in all that we do and continue to support all stakeholders as we work together to develop compassionate and responsible leaders who embrace lifelong learning,” said Collins. “While this is a very exciting day for me personally, I am more excited about seeing how we will continue to evolve and push the envelope on helping students be their best selves.”
After serving seven years as Locust Grove Elementary principal, Andy Moore is moving up to Oldham County High School. Moore is excited to bring his innovative approach to Oldham County’s largest high school and he is committed to ensuring that all students learn and lead to their maximum potential.
“Throughout the interview process, it was clear to the selection committee that Mr. Moore will bring both an energetic and innovative style to the role,” said Dr. Willie Foster, Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning for Oldham County Schools. “It was also clear that he believes in developing leadership and is willing to push to ensure that students are at the center of all decisions.”
We look forward to welcoming our students back on August 14 and we hope everyone is excited about the new school year.
