Lakewood Elementary School has one of its own taking the helm this school year.
Shelee Clark has taken the job of principal after serving as assistant principal at the school for a little more than a year.
Clark replaces Kerry Reeves, who retired in August. Clark has held a variety of positions in the Hardin County Schools district and taught at Lakewood for five years.
Clark worked closely with Reeves during her time as assistant principal, she said. Reeves believed all administrators should know what principal duties entail, she said.
