The Hale County Board of Education recently approved superintendent Frank Stegall’s recommendation of James Davis as the principal of Greensboro West High School.

Davis is a native of Clanton, and served as principal of Brookwood Middle School in Tuscaloosa last year.

During his 13 year tenure at Loachapoka Elementary and Loachapoka High School in Lee County, Davis awarded his school $8,500 for adequate yearly progress in his “Meeting the Challenge” contest.

Alabama’s Department of Education honored Davis with the “Outstanding Career Technical Program of the Year” award while he served as assistant principal at Smiths Station High School.

He is also a member of the Council of Leaders for Alabama Schools where he currently serves as the state president-elect for the Alabama Association of Elementary School Administrators, and has been a representative on the CLAS board of directors.

Davis graduated from the University of North Alabama with a bachelor degree in science and a master’s degree in business administration in marketing. He earned his marketing education certificate from Auburn University, and his administration certificate from Troy University.

He is married to his wife Carolyn, and has two children, Kendall and Kensley.

Davis said he is grateful for the nomination.

The faculty, staff, parents, students, community churches and business leaders are invited to attend “Meet the New Principal” night on Tuesday, July 29 at 6 at the Greensboro West High School auditorium.
