Dear Athens High School Faculty, Parents and Students:
Dr. Rick Carter has accepted a new position in our school system as the Executive Director of Planning for Athens City Schools. We are grateful to Dr. Carter for his dedication and enthusiasm for students and teachers during his time as AHS Principal, and we look forward to his expertise as he presents opportunities for student and capital planning as we prepare for the anticipated growth within our school system.
Effective immediately, Mr. Willie Moore will assume administrative duties as the Interim Executive Principal of Athens High School. Mr. Moore brings more than 26 years of administrative and classroom experience to his new role as Interim Executive Principal. He joined Athens City Schools as Assistant Principal at AHS in 2018 and became the Associate Principal of Grades 11-12 in 2019. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Special Education from The University of Alabama and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Alabama State University. The Board of Education has the highest degree of confidence in Mr. Moore's ability to lead during this time of transition.
The search process for a new principal will begin immediately. The process is expected to take several weeks, and the Board of Education plans to have the position filled by the holiday season.
Mr. Willie Moore
AHS Interim Executive Principal
