Curtis said, “These individuals will lead their respective schools into a new era of education in Cannon County. As we go forward, I have the utmost confidence that the individuals placed in these important and essential roles will exhibit academic excellence that will impact generations of Cannon County students in the years to come. These instructional leaders are tasked to be ‘Actively Engaged in Excellence Every Day and in EVERY Way!’ and our collective expectation is that each principal will ‘Create a Unified Environment That Will Provide Opportunities for ALL Students to Succeed and Reach Their Full Potential.’ We had some outstanding candidates for the new Cannon County Middle School principal, and we welcome Dr. Thurman Tucker as the newest principal in Cannon County Schools. All of the Cannon County Schools family, starting with these principals, will be working hard in the upcoming weeks and months regarding the restructuring and modernization process for our students. Principals will begin the process by hiring an assistant principal for the 2022-23 school year at each of these schools in the next few weeks. We congratulate those chosen to lead their faculties, support staff, and most of all their students in the up-coming 2022-23 school year.”
