Former Oak Ridge High School and now-former Knox Central High School principal Jody Goins left his Knox County post after just one year in order to take over the reins of Claiborne High School in his family’s native Claiborne County.
The 32-year-old Goins announced last week he was leaving Central after just one year, but initially, his new destination was not revealed.
Goins said that the move to Claiborne was done so that both he and his wife could be closer to their respective families. Goins, a Clinton High School graduate, worked at Oak Ridge High School beginning in 2004 before being named principal in 2009. At the time, he was the state’s youngest principal.
