Danville High School has hired an assistant principal for the 2012-13 school year, just in time for classes that are slated to start Aug. 14.
Wade Stanfield, 42, of Harrodsburg, will be the assistant principal for Danville High. Stanfield last worked as associate principal for Henry Clay High School in Lexington and was principal of Mercer County Senior High School in Harrodsburg from 2004-2007.
Aaron Etherington, who recently was named 2012-13 principal for Danville High and whose former position Stanfield fills, said he is excited to welcome the new assistant principal to the Admiral family.
“Wade’s charisma, high energy, and passion for teenagers will be an asset for our school,” Etherington said. “It was very easy to see his vision for all students, and that vision was not just an academic one. It will not take students, staff and parents very long to see why Wade was chosen to serve as assistant principal.”
