Pat Suddarth, former principal at the Wilson County Adult High School, was named the new principal at Wilson Central High School Tuesday morning, just in time as students return to school today.
Wilson County Director of Schools Mike Davis made the announcement at WCHS yesterday morning as administrators and faculty returned to school. Former principal at WCHS, Darian Brown, resigned the position at the end of the fall 2011 semester.
Were excited about her accepting this new challenge, Davis said.
A teacher for 33 years, Suddarth has been the principal at the Adult High School since 2009 and before that was a teacher at the school since 1999. A Lebanon resident, Suddarth has been teaching in Wilson County since 1978, when she taught Chemistry and Biology at Mt. Juliet High School.
Following that, Suddarth taught Math and Biology at Lebanon High School. She later earned a Masters in Education in Administration and Supervision from Trevecca Nazarene College.
Davis said Suddarth will have a positive influence on WCHS and said the staff and administration will not miss a beat despite replacing leadership in the middle of the school year.
Its always difficult when you replace someone in the middle of the year, but shes ready to go to work, Davis said.
Brown is to be assigned as a reading coach for the spring semester at West Wilson Middle School. He held the principals position at Wilson Central for nearly two years and prior to that, was a teacher / coachfor 16 years.
