Looney to announce Centennial principal Monday
By Skip Anderson, For the Williamson Herald
The superintendent of Williamson County Schools said he would announce the new principal of Centennial High to its faculty Monday at 9 a.m.
“I am really excited at the person who has risen to the top of the selection process,” Dr. Mike Looney, WCS superintendent, told the Williamson Herald. “This person has a stellar reputation.”
Looney would not say whether the successful candidate currently works within the Williamson County School System.
The school's previous principal, Frank Brown, resigned in October amid allegations of sexual misconduct with a McGavock High School student 10 years prior. Retired assistant principal Sandra Joiner has served as Centennial's interim principal since Brown's resignation. In an incident unrelated to his resignation, Looney had suspended the Brown without pay earlier in the month for alleged grade swapping.
Shortly after Brown's resignation, Looney told CHS parents that finding the right person for the job would be a priority.
“We're not going to rush,” Dr. Mike Looney said. “I want to make sure we're deliberate and methodical. This school deserves a great principal for the next decade.”
The students are scheduled to return from winter break Tuesday.
