New ACPC Principal Introduced at Board Meeting
Adair County Primary Center will be under the tutelage of new principal Debbie Bradshaw next year; Bradshaw, a 4th grade teacher at Adair County Elementary School, was recommended for hire by the ACPC site-based council who cited Bradshaw’s passion and commitment to education at Thursday’s monthly school board meeting.
“I’m really grateful and I’m so excited to get to work for the students, parents, the staff, and the entire community,” said Bradshaw. “We are going to do great things.”
Superintendent Dr. Pam Stephens commended the ACPC site based council for spending many hours over-viewing candidate applications, calling references, and conducting interviews. 14 applications were received and nine interviews were conducted throughout the process.
“The passion and commitment of the site based council is great,” said Dr. Stephens. “We really appreciate all your hard work.”
Current principal Patti Smith, who is retiring, said that she believes the site-based council made a great choice.
“I’ve been here for 17 years and I can’t think of anyone better to take over as principal,” said Smith. “Great job by the site based council and I know Mrs. Bradshaw will be great.”
