West Jessamine High School assistant principal Jimmy Brehm has been named the principal at Garden Springs Elementary in Lexington starting in the 2012-2013 school year.
Brehm was introduced Monday at Garden Springs. He will retain his current duties at West Jessamine High School through the end of the school year.
In a message to school staff Monday night, Brehm said he had been privileged to spend six years around the high school as a coach and assistant principal and that the greatest part of his job had been working with students, staff and a community that “believe ardently that education provides students with the opportunities they deserve.”
Brehm has spent seven years in Jessamine County, coaching baseball at East Jessamine before teaching fifth grade at Nicholasville Elementary and then seventh grade at West Jessamine Middle. He has served as an assistant principal at West High for the last two years and coached softball there for four years from 2007-2010.
