Assistant principal named at GCHS

LANCASTER - Tammy Gilkinson has been named assistant principal at Garrard County High School. She will replace Ken Hurt, who is retiring Nov. 25, and will start Dec. 1, said Principal Kevin Stull. Hurt retires Nov. 25.

"We were impressed with her knowledge of alternative programs and the challenges that bring," said Stull. He also said Gilkinson has a good knowledge of curriculum.

While Hurt also filled the role of athletic director, another administrator will be named to fill that void. Last Thursday the school board approved the creation of a third administrative position at GCHS titled Dean of Students/Athletic Director. That position is expected to be filled in early 2004.


While Stull said that every administrator deals with discipline on an as-needed basis, the primary role of the third administrator, along with athletics, will be discipline.

"We're trying to free up additional time for curriculum, and she will focus on that," said Stull of Gilkinson.
