Ginny Rigell Boles has been named principal of Glenwood Elementary School in Oak Ridge.
The appointment was announced Monday by Oak Ridge Schools Superintendent Bruce Borchers.
Boles will become principal effective July 1. She will replace Pearl Goins, who recently retired, a press release said.
An interview committee comprised of Glenwood and central office staff selected Boles after applications were screened and some candidates were interviewed.
“Ms. Boles has enthusiastically accepted the role as the next principal of Glenwood Elementary,” the press release said. “Maryville City Schools has been her home since 2001, working in a variety of positions as a teacher, assistant principal, and as principal of John Sevier Elementary for the past five years. As a member of the John Sevier team, Ms. Boles was able to lead the school to Reward School status for multiple years, lead the district in developing a literacy framework, create opportunities for student engagement through the superhero character education program, and establish a strong base for family involvement by keeping students at the center of every decision and successfully building a positive working relationship with staff and parents.”
A 1993 graduate of Oak Ridge High School, Boles received a bachelorâ€™s degree in child development with teacher licensure from Maryville College in 1997. She completed her masterâ€™s degree in administration and supervision from Lincoln Memorial University.
Borchers said he is â€œpleased to have Ms. Boles join the excellent staff at Glenwood Elementary School. I look forward to her leadership and believe that Glenwood students, parents, and staff will be very excited to make her part of the Glenwood family.â€
