New Principals Introduced to Rotary Club

by Bob Augustin Jr.

 

New principals

 

 

      Rotarian Bill Heath, Lawrence County Director of Schools, introduced Phillip Wright and Michael Atkins as the new principals for Loretto High School and Lawrence County High Schools respectively at the October 3, 2008 meeting of the Lawrenceburg Rotary Club.  Wright, a native of Fentriss County Tennessee,  came to LHS from Columbia Academy in Columbia, Tennessee and Atkins, an alumnus of LCHS,  was the Assistant Principal at LCHS.

     LHS Principal Phillip Wright said that the Loretto community loves LHS and is extremely supportive of the school and helps the school in any way it can.  "It takes community involvement to get schools where they need to be,"  stated Wright.  Another strength of LHS is that the majority of the teachers at LHS are graduates of Loretto High.   LHS has begun a Intervention program which it designed to "not allow a student to fail."  Wright also noted that teachers at Loretto High are also doing ACT reviews for students before school hours, during school hours, during breaks, and after school hours.

    LCHS principal Michael Atkins said that many students just need someone to notice them.  They just need someone to take the time to speak to them or just to listen to them.  Atkins said that academic improvement is the biggest challenge at LCHS.  Students need to understand that high school is a place to learn and not just a place to get breakfast and lunch.  His goal is to establish a "Learning Community" at LCHS and, while extracurricular activities for students are important, they should be just that; something "extra".  They are something in addition to classes and not to take the place of learning and classes.
