Hickman has worked for Rutherford County Schools since 1996. For the past seven years, he’s served as the Principal of Buchanan Elementary School, which has made tremendous strides under his leadership. In 2012, Buchanan Elementary was ranked among the top 5% in the state for progress. Three years later, the school was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School for Gap Closure.
Dr. Wright, says she’s thrilled to have a candidate with such a strong track record assume the reins at Stoner Creek, “We continue to be proud of the extraordinary performance of our students and teachers at Stoner Creek. I’m certain Hickman will be able to, not only assume the role of principal, but take the school to even greater heights.”
Hickman, who already lives in Mt. Juliet with his family, will start on March 27th.
