Letcher County resident Rondall Baker has been chosen to fill the vacant position of principal at Jenkins Middle/High School.
The announcement came at the June meeting of the Jenkins Independent Schools Board of Education.
Baker came to Jenkins Schools from the Letcher County School System through Martha Jane Potter Elementary, where he served as an elementary schoolteacher. He held the position of Director of Pupil Personnel and School Safety Director at Jenkins Independent Schools and also served as Transportation Director.
Baker will assume his new position for the 2020-2021 school year. The board has not set a firm date for opening schools this fall, until it has more information from the Kentucky Department of Education in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic.
