Site-based council decides to promote assistant principal

The John Hardin High School site-based decision-making council has selected one of the school’s assistant principals, Lynne Gibson, to be the new JHHS principal.

“The John Hardin leadership wants to move from being a good school to a great school. Lynne is up to the challenge,” Superintendent Nannette Johnston said in a statement. “We are excited for her and the John Hardin High School family.”

Gibson is an East Hardin High School graduate. She earned a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, a Rank 2 in exceptional child education and a Rank 1 in administration from Western Kentucky University. 

Her teaching experience started at St. Agnes School in Uniontown. She taught seventh- and eighth-grade social studies there from 1978 to 1986. She returned to Hardin County and taught social studies and special education until 2001 at North Hardin High School. She joined the John Hardin staff when the school opened in 2001 and taught social studies until she became assistant principal in October 2009.

“I can’t wait to get started,” Gibson said.  “I appreciate the support from our site-based council and Mrs. Johnston. I am honored to be a member of the Bulldog family and I look forward to the future.”

Gibson takes over for Alvin Garrison who took the superintendent’s position at Covington Independent Schools. 

A search will begin immediately to fill the assistant principal position that Gibson vacated.
