Elizabeth Raeburn, currently assistant principal at Bryan County Middle School, will become principal at the school starting with the 2017-2018 school year.
The move was approved by the Bryan County Schools Board of Education Thursday night. Current Principal Mike Tinney requested to be reassigned to the assistant principal position in order to devote more time to his family, according to a press release from the district.
“This leadership appointment is an indication of the continued success of Bryan County Schools,” Superintendent Paul Brooksher said in the release. “I truly look forward to the positive impact this will have on the students, staff, parents and the entire Bryan County Middle School community.”
Raeburn has 16 years of experience as a teacher and administrator, including 12 at the middle school level. She was appointed assistant principal at BCMS in August 2016, having previously served as a special education administrator at the Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township in the Indianapolis area. She and her family moved to southeast Georgia in 2016 after her husband, Erik, was appointed head football coach at Savannah State University.
