The selection process for principals is completed, and I am pleased to announce the following:

Melinda Crook has accepted the position of principal at Auburn School.

Bonnie Patterson has accepted the position of principal at Woodbury Grammar.

Both of these ladies have been excellent employees of the Cannon Co. School System for several years, and they definitely have a desire to see the children of Cannon Co. succeed.

I look forward to working with both of them in the coming year.

Hello! My name is Melinda Crook, and I am the 5th grade teacher and the Assistant Principal here at Auburn Elementary. I graduated from MTSU in 2000 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and in 2005 with a Master's Degree in Administration and Supervision. I began my teaching career here at Auburn School in 2001. I feel fortunate that I was able to come back and teach at the school where I attended grades K-8. I love our small school and community because it feels like one big family!
I have been happily married for 6 years and have a beautiful little girl. I enjoy spending time with my family and watching Reality T.V.

Congratulations to both ladies, but a real loss for Cannon County High School losing Mrs.Patterson. She was very fair and kind to all the children at the high school. I know she will do a great job in her new position.

Awesome! - Melinda, Mr. Turney was great for so many years and as it has already been said you do have "big shoes to fill"; but has anybody seen your feet lately? ha ha!
When I heard the news I did a cartwheel (on the inside)last time I tried to do one for real - let's just say it wasn't pretty. I know you will do a great job and make me proud - but then - you already have!
Love you, Sandy
