Limestone County Schools approved Tanner High School's new principal on Tuesday.

The school board selected Deborah Kenyon, who is currently the school's assistant principal. She will take over as principal before the fall.


Kenyon released the following statement:

Education is my passion, I have always been an advocate for children, and I'm honored to continue advocating for the students of Tanner High School as their instructional leader. My personal mantra is "All Means All", it takes everyone working as a team to make sure that all students needs and strengths are met so that they will be successful. I grew up in Decatur, AL and graduated from Austin High School. I hold degrees from: Athens State University - Bachelor of Science Degree in Sociology, University of North Alabama - Master's Degree in Secondary Education, and University of West Alabama - Instructional Leadership Certificate, and an Education Specialist Degree - Teacher Leader from University of West Alabama.

In my early career, I was a licensed Social Worker for the State of Alabama, working for Morgan County Department of Human Resources, and later as the Executive Director for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Morgan County. I have been an educator for 17 years, working for Mobile County Schools as a classroom teacher, and Baldwin County Schools as a classroom teacher, Instructional Transformation Specialist, and Curriculum Leader. I served as the Assistant Principal for Tanner High School, in Limestone County Schools since December of 2017.

Kenyon replaces Louis Gordon, who was fired for unspecified reasons earlier this month.
