A Campbell County High School assistant principal has been named the new principal at Boyle County High School.
Elmer C. Thomas, of Richmond, one of four finalists in the search process, will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Kerry Anness, effective at the end of the current school year.
"We are extremely pleased to have Mr. Thomas coming to Boyle County High School. His knowledge and enthusiasm should help continue our progress toward both local and state goals," said Jenny Smiley, acting chairperson of the school's council.
"I am looking forward to the great opportunity as principal of Boyle County High School. Council members and central office personnel have been open and friendly, and I look forward to working with them, school staff and members of the community to focus on goals ahead that will ensure excellence for our students," said Thomas.
