June 10, 2022 — Jessica Sekulski was selected Friday as the principal for Nelson County High School by the school’s site-based decision making council.
Sekulski has spent over a decade of her career in the Nelson County Schools in a range of roles within the schools and central administration.
Parent representative Jenny Kidwell shared, “Jessica Sekulski is the right person at the right time to lead NCHS into the future.” Richard Argueta, a math teacher, and teacher representative added, “We are excited that Mrs. Sekulski brings a vision and belief that unites both high academic standards and positive school culture.”
Sekulski has served as a school counselor for much of her experience with Nelson County, including serving at Bloomfield Middle School, Thomas Nelson High School and My Old Kentucky Home Middle school. Sekulski also spent two years as the district’s Director of Pupil Personnel, where she led district-wide program development with family caretakers, counselors and school principals. Prior to joining Nelson County Schools, Sekulski spent six years as a business teacher at Henry County High School.
Nelson County Schools Superintendent Wes Bradley noted that Sekulski’s selection is another example of local SBDM teams promoting leadership from within the system and recognizing the importance of commitment to our Nelson County community.
“During Jessica’s time working within our schools she has proven to be a ‘we’ centered leader and has built powerful relationships with people. In turn, a focus on student success and academic excellence can thrive. Jessica’s powerful experiences provide a vehicle for the NCHS team to work closely with others across the district and community.”
