On August 20, the PCSC Board of Trustees hired a new superintendent. With the vote being 7-0, Greg Walker from Brownstown Central Community Schools was hired.
Walker is a 1988 graduate from Green County High School in Greensburg, Kentucky. Walker went on to Western Kentucky University to receive a bachelor’s degree. Additionally, Walker received his principal’s license from Indiana University in 2004 and his educational specialist degree in 2014 from Indiana State University.
Over the past twenty years, Walker has been both a teacher and an administrator at various schools. Walker taught agriculture at Bedford North Lawrence for eleven years. He was also Brownstown’s assistant high school principal for seven years, middle school principal for three and a half years and superintendent for three and a half years.
Although Walker will miss the relationships he has made, he thinks it will be a “smooth transition.”
“I have always admired Paoli schools and decided it was an opportunity I wanted to pursue,” said Walker.
When it comes to improving and representing Paoli schools, Walker hopes to analyze testing data and improve testing scores, help Paoli schools become more “financially sound” and help to develop a positive school climate.
Walker signed a three year contract, an Indiana standard, and his first day on the job is October 1.
