In 1995, Alvin L. Garrison began his professional teaching career at North Hardin High School and later took over as principal at John Hardin High School. In June, he steps into a new role as superintendent of Covington Independent Schools.
Garrison, 42, said he was offered the job a week ago and reached an agreement with the school district Thursday. On Friday, he announced the news to the John Hardin faculty.
During a special meeting Saturday morning, the Covington Board of Education voted 5-0 to hire Garrison, according to a district news release.
