Chandler's School has announced that BobbiSue Holmes has been selected as the new principal of Chandler's. The decision was made at Chandler's School by the Chandler's Site-Based Decision Making Council on Thursday, April 18. Ms. Holmes was welcomed to Chandler’s School and introduced to staff at an after-school meeting on Friday, April 19.

Holmes is currently the district counselor at Glasgow Independent Schools. She has 21 years of experience in education, with 11 years of teaching experience across several grade levels. She was previously principal at South Green Elementary School in Glasgow. She has also served as a school counselor and the dean of students at Cumberland Trace Elementary School in Bowling Green.

“I am so excited to be here,” said Holmes as she met with Chandler's staff Friday. “To share from Pablo Picasso, ‘The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.’ We are here to help our students find their gifts and become the people they are meant to be. I am so grateful to be here to support as we serve our students and our community.”

Holmes is a graduate of Western Kentucky University with her Master’s in K-12 School Counseling. She has earned her Bachelor’s in Elementary Education, Rank I in Mental Health, and Principal License from Western Kentucky University.

"We are excited to welcome BobbiSue Holmes as the new Chandler's School principal," said Superintendent Dr. Dan Costellow. “Ms. Holmes brings to Logan County and Chandler’s School a wealth of successful experience and knowledge. She is the right person at the right time to lead our students and staff toward greater success. I appreciate the input that our school community provided to our SBDM Council, and for the Council’s diligence and dedication throughout this process.”

Chandler’s School extends a big thank you to Mrs. Jennifer Jenkins for stepping in as interim principal at Chandler’s this spring. Mrs. Jenkins will continue to serve as principal through the end of the school year, and Ms. Holmes will officially begin her principal duties on July 1.

The position came open when Principal Bonnie Spears resigned to accept the same position at Drakes Creek Middle School in Warren County at the end of the fall semester.
