Phil Iannarone is returning to the place where he started in Hamilton County Schools to become the new principal at Central High School.  He began his career in Hamilton County Schools as a teacher at Central High in 2004. 

 

He will replace Finley King who retired in April. Mr. Iannarone is currently the principal at Snow Hill Elementary.  As principal at Snow Hill this year, Mr. Iannarone helped guide the school during its construction period to expand the school.

Construction has been underway most of the school year at Snow Hill.

 

Before becoming the principal at Snow Hill, Mr. Iannarone was the principal at Spring Creek Elementary from 2014 to 2017.  He also has administrative experience in Hamilton County Schools as an assistant principal at East Lake Academy and Hunter Middle School.   

 

Originally from Long Island, New York and affectionately known as “Mr. I” to teachers, parents, and students, Mr. Iannarone came to the area to attend Lee University, where he earned his BS degree in education. He began his career in the private school sector where he served as a teacher and a principal for 13 years. During that time he earned his master’s degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and a specialist’s degree from Lee. His successful tenure as a private school principal provided multiple speaking and mentoring opportunities. He also served as a consultant for Christian schools in the southeast. Mr. Iannarone has participated in PEF Leadership Fellows Cohort 7 and Principal Leadership Academy Cohort 3.  

 

Officials said, "Mr. Innarone believes success is possible for all students, which was important in the responses of parents to a survey seeking qualities and qualifications for a new principal for Central. Parents were also interested in a track record of leadership and experience as a principal in the new school leader for Central High in the Harrison Bay Learning Community."      

 

Kim Pringle, assistant principal at Snow Hill Elementary, will serve as the interim principal at Snow Hill Elementary. She has served as the school’s assistant principal since 2016.

 

The expanded Snow Hill Elementary will be ready for students when the school opens in August.

Just had dinner Tuesday night at Jonathan's Grille location in Hendersonville, Tn. When in Murfreesboro or Nashville, it's one of my favs. Just a great sports bar concept and menu. So happy to hear the Revelette brothers are bringing their brand (and their pizza night) to the old 212 Market location in downtown Chattanooga. Bring it on! Garry Mac (click for more)

CFC Falls To Detroit City, 2-1

Alun Webb found himself in a familiar setting: streaking down the pitch on a breakaway in the 7. After Juan Hernandez’s lead pass led him past the defense, Webb’s only obstacle was the prowling Detroit City goalkeeper. As he entered the box, Webb slowed down ever so slightly, and began to load up for the inevitable volley. That shot never came, as Detroit’s Tendai Jirira ... (click for more)
