Bethel Bible Village President Kevin Beirne and Board Chair Lennie Furr have announced the appointment of Jenny Vowell as principal of Bethel Christian Academy, the therapeutic school for Bethel residents in grades 6-12.

“Jenny brings to Bethel a keen understanding of how counseling and education work together to help children and teens overcome crisis and succeed in school,” said Kevin Beirne, Bethel president. “She has experience in the field of mental health as a child and adolescent therapist and worked for 15 years in the field of Georgia public education at Chickamauga City Schools and at Calhoun City Schools.”

“A child in crisis should not be a reality in our world,” Ms. Vowell said. “It is my pleasure to serve as principal at Bethel Christian Academy, an environment that is geared for student success and a learning environment that celebrates accomplishments.

“I believe that God has the power to change people, regardless of their age. For this to happen, students need to feel that school is a safe place and no matter what, that they are loved and accepted.”

Ms. Vowell, who grew up in El Paso, has a BGS from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and an MS in Psychology and Counseling from Troy State University. Recently, she earned an EDS as Educational Specialist, Instructional Technology from Kennesaw State University, where she is a doctoral candidate. She has a National Board Certification as school counselor and PSC certification in School Counseling (K-12) and Instructional Technology.

She believes in giving back to her community with her time and talents. She has served as a board member of The Business Education Alliance Team of Walker County and the Northwest Georgia RESA School Counselors Committee. She is married to Tommy Vowell and has one son, Peyton who attends UTC. Her church home is First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga.
