Elmore to be WCHS’ next principal

A new principal was only going to be hired at Washington County High School if the right person stepped up to claim the position, as naming an interim principal for one year was not out of the question.

Washington County Schools, however, found their man.

Thad Elmore, who has been in education for 19 years, has spent much of his time in Elizabethtown — most recently at Helmwood Heights Elementary and TK Stone Middle — and he’ll be taking over at WCHS as students and faculty prepare to move to the new facility.
