County Schools Announce Staff Changes

Bill Ripley, principal at Camp Creek Elementary School, will serve as the assistant director of academics and human resources for the Greene County School System in 2013-2014, according to a Tuesday announcement by Director of Schools Dr. Vicki Kirk.

Kirk announced last week that David McLain, principal at North Greene High School, will serve as assistant director of operations and academic services.

Both positions report directly to Kirk.

Also announced Tuesday in a news release was the appointment of Dr. Kristi Wallin, principal of Mosheim Elementary and Middle Schools, as K-8 curriculum supervisor and Dr. Julia Lamons, principal of West Greene High School, as the K-8 data assessment and evaluation supervisor.

"I am pleased to welcome these three fine educators to the Central Office team," Kirk said in the release.

"Together they bring experience, vision and determination that will help advance the success of Greene County Schools."


"Mr. Ripley has demonstrated success in leadership at Chuckey-Doak Middle School and Camp Creek Elementary as well as in his service on district-wide teams," Kirk said.

"I know Mr. Ripley will bring much success to the school system through his passion for learning and his commitment to students."

Ripley began teaching at DeBusk Elementary School in 1997. He also taught at Doak and Chuckey elementary schools and at Chuckey-Doak Middle School, where he later served as assistant principal.

For the past two years, he has been the principal of Camp Creek Elementary School and has served on committees for the school system, including those for safety and professional development.

Ripley is a member of Fairview Cumberland Presbyterian Church, where he is an elder and Sunday school teacher.

He earned his Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts in Teaching degrees from East Tennessee State University before graduating from Lincoln Memorial University with an education specialist degree.

He and his wife, Sherry, live in Afton with their two children, Drew and Will.


Wallin has most recently served as principal at Mosheim Elementary and Middle schools, and as an adjunct professor at Tusculum College in the education program, according to the release.

"As the current principal at Mosheim School, Dr. Kristi Wallin has made a positive impact on the school and community, and I know that she will bring a wealth of knowledge to the K-8 curriculum position," Kirk said.

Wallin obtained her Bachelor's degree from Carson-Newman University in Jefferson City. While serving as a fourth-grade teacher at Mosheim Elementary, she received her doctoral degree from ETSU.

Wallin lives in Midway with her husband, Steve, and three children: Chandler, Cole and Madison.


In 2009, Lamons was named assistant principal at Mosheim. Then, in 2011, she became principal at West Greene High School.

"The effective use of data is vital to the academic success of the students in our district, and I am confident that Dr. Julia Lamons will provide the leadership to direct our schools to move forward in this area," Kirk said.

Lamons is also an adjunct professor for the Tusculum College graduate/professional studies program.

She has taught at McDonald Elementary School and at Mosheim.

She received a Bachelor's degree in elementary education and a Master's degree in education from Tusculum College.

Lamons completed a doctorate in educational leadership and policy analysis in 2009.

She lives in Mount Carmel with her husband, Travis, and their two children, Ayden and Journey.
