Owens named Clay principal

When students return to Clay Elementary in the fall, they will have a new principal in the front office.
Susan Owens, who has been an instructional coach at Providence Elementary since 2014, will take over the school’s top position. Owens is both a former student and teacher at the school.

“I am excited to be going back to the school I attended and where I taught for twelve years,” said Owens. “Clay Elementary has a tremendous staff, and I am confident we can work together to create a culture of high expectations on behalf of student learning.”

During her career, she spent twelve years as a teacher at Clay Elementary and two years as an instructional coach in Union County schools before taking her current position at Providence.
“It is an honor to be selected as the new principal of Clay Elementary, and I am eager to begin this next chapter in my educational career,” she said. “It is essential that we create a vision for Clay School that is focused on the education of the whole child. I look forward to building relationships with all stakeholders and forming a partnership with the Clay Community.”

Owens completed her undergraduate work at Western Kentucky University, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education.

Clay Mattingly, who has served as principal of the school for several years turned in his resignation from that position last month, effective at the end of the school year. He will be reassigned to Webster County Middle School, where he will be a part time teacher and part time assistant principal.
