The principal of LaRue County High School is moving on this summer to lead a district.
Paul Mullins was selected as the next superintendent for Garrard County Schools. His selection was announced Thursday by the Garrard County Board of Education.
Mullins considered leading a school district a personal goal and Garrard County was a good fit, he said.
The school district’s size is similar to LaRue County Schools. Mullins said he feels he has experiences that could help the district.
“I want to be able to bring something to the table,” he said.
He also experienced a “wonderful connection” with the board members, he said.
Mullins will remain with LaRue County High School until the end of June. He spent the day Friday speaking with its staff about his decision.
“It’s been a tearful day at times,” he said.
Mullins, who has been principal since 2005, said he has a lot of positive feelings about the community. His son graduated from LaRue County High School and “we consider ourselves LaRue County Hawks,” he said.
“This place will always be a ... big part of my life,” he said.
Mullins said he’s proud of what’s been accomplished during his tenure at the high school, and he was quick to lay those successes at the feet of the staff.
“The strides and successes we’ve made here have been a team effort,” he said.
Mullins began his teaching career in 1994 at North Hardin High School, and later taught in the Elizabethtown Independent Schools district. He has served as principal at Lewisburg School and Caverna High School in Horse Cave. He is a graduate of Elizabethtown High School.
