Year in review
The 2012-2013 school year started with Dwayne Ellison serving in an interim role as the leader of the Ninth Grade School. At the year’s end, Ellison was named principal after a thoughtful hiring process facilitated by the School Based Decision Making Council.
A strong foundation
Ellison is a native of Fleming County, Kentucky. He is a graduate of Campbellsville University and earned Master’s degrees from Georgetown College and Eastern Kentucky University. His career started in a social studies classroom in Meade County in 1998 but he has called Scott County home for 14 years serving as both a teacher and an administrator.
“Dwayne Ellison was an incredible teacher and a great assistant principal for Scott County Schools and we are proud to have him as principal,” Director of Secondary Schools Chip Southworth offered words of congratulations.
Big plans ahead
Ellison and his team at the Ninth Grade School have created quite a momentum working diligently each day to raise and meet expectations to ensure all students are college and career ready. He reflected on his position and future plans, “I am honored to be the Ninth Grade Principal. I have been blessed to be surrounded by a very supportive family and staff. Our students and families this year at the Ninth Grade Nation really made it easy to accomplish many of our goals. We will set the goals even higher next year and not be satisfied until we have made it to the top.”
