The Lee County School District has announced 4 promotions of existing administrators, in preparation of the coming school year. Two Assistant Principals, Ricky Secor and Sharron Williams, have advanced to new positions as school principals. Two previous principals, Shannon Shuey and Melvin Marshall, will assume new roles in the school district’s administrative offices.
Both of LCS’s new principals have a good deal of familiarity with their student communities. Mr. Secor moves from Greenwood Elementary to his new role as Broadway Elementary Principal, where he previously served as an administrative intern. Dr. Williams advances from Assistant Principal to Principal at East Lee Middle School.
Dr. Shuey’s new role as Middle School Curriculum Specialist allows her to assume instructional leadership with the county’s students, teachers and administrators. Mr. Marshall will assume the newly created position of At-Risk Student Coordinator. These added resources and Mr. Marshall’s presence at the district level will allow LCS to better identify and address the needs of schools’ at-risk students.
LCS Superintendent Dr. Andy Bryan sees the administrative enhancements as the latest step in the district’s emphasis on providing students with the skills they will need to be college- and career-ready. He notes that the changes, “will make us a stronger school district and allow us to enhance support for our students. We are fortunate to have experienced individuals who are able to take on new responsibilities at the district and building levels.”
