Year long search brings Monnett to Nelson County High School BEN MONNNETT

After nearly a year of searching for a permanent principal of Nelson County High School, Superintendent Wes Bradley announced that the NCHS SBDM unanimously hired Ben Monnett as the permanent principal beginning July 1st, 2020. 

 

“I am proud of the hard work and patience from the NCHS site based decision making team throughout the nearly year long process. To be honest, I’m not sure we could have found a better fit anywhere in the state of Kentucky. I’m just really excited for the students, teachers, and families in our community. In the end, I think we found the best candidate to lead NCHS. Mr. Monnett was clearly a stand out and brings a good deal of success throughout his life that I expect to fully carry forward in his leadership at NCHS.”

 

An educator since 2013, Monnett has worked in various roles that have allowed for extensive learning.  “I’m honored and humbled to have been chosen to serve as the next principal at Nelson County High School.  To have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition as NCHS is a once in a lifetime opportunity.  I look forward to joining the students, staff, and community in continuing to build upon this tradition and creating a legacy we can all take pride in.” Monnett added.
