FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Williamson County School officials have named a new principal for Centennial High School.
Superintendent Dr. Mike Looney introduced Leigh Webb to the Centennial faculty Monday morning when they reported back to school for the second semester. She will officially begin on February 1.
"Leigh Webb is a fantastic hire for Centennial High," said Looney. "She has been instrumental in the success experienced at Ravenwood, and I know her leadership will help build on the excellence already in place at Centennial."
Webb is currently the assistant principal at Ravenwood High School.
Former Centennial Assistant Principal Sandra Joyner will continue serving as interim principal through January.
Webb replaces Dr. Frank Brown, who resigned last year following allegations that he had a sexual relationship with a student nearly ten years ago when he was still working with Metro Schools. No charges were filed in the case.
Webb joined Williamson County Schools in 2004 as an English and reading teacher at Franklin High School. She has served as assistant principal at Ravenwood since 2005.
She said she is thrilled to be joining the faculty, staff and student body at Centennial High.
"It will be difficult leaving behind my Ravenwood family, and I am grateful for the experiences and relationships built there over the past eight years," said Webb. "During my time in the district I've had the pleasure of getting to know many of Centennial's great educators and know we embody the same passion and persistence for excellence. I am eager to start building relationships throughout the entire CHS community and start our diligent work together."
Webb earned her Bachelor's Degree and Master's in Education from Bethel College. She is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Education at Lipscomb University.
