Shane Pantall WCS Franklin High principal

Shane Pantall, the current principal of Page High School, will become the Franklin High School principal starting in July.

Williamson County Schools Superintendent Jason Golden has selected a Franklin High School graduate and former Franklin teacher and assistant principal to return and lead the school.

Page High School Principal Dr. Shane Pantall has been named principal of Franklin High replacing Willie Dickerson, who was recently named an executive director of secondary schools.

“Dr. Pantall is an educator who continues to put students first,” Golden said. “He is always willing to serve and lead where he is needed. He has done great work at Page High, and I expect him to do the same at Franklin. Shane was the perfect choice because of his personal and professional history at FHS.”

Pantall, a 1990 graduate of Franklin High, began his career in education as a teacher at Fairview Middle School followed by Fairview High School. He then taught at Franklin High for seven years before being named an assistant principal at Heritage Middle School.

He served as an assistant principal at Heritage for three years before moving to Franklin High, where he was an assistant principal for five years. He has been the principal of Page High for the past five years.

“The Page High community is a special one, and I will miss the students and staff who I worked so closely with over the past five years,” Pantall said. “Franklin has always been home for me and my family. My wife and I are graduates of Franklin, my dad taught there for the final 10 years of his 45-year career and I spent a good part of my career there.

“With the school location so close to my home, I will be able to spend more time with my kids and grandkids, which is also important to me. I look forward to reconnecting with the Franklin community.”

Pantall earned his bachelor’s degree in health education from Middle Tennessee State University and his master’s and doctorate degrees in educational leadership from Trevecca Nazarene University.

He will begin his new role on July 1.
