PUTNAM COUNTY – Shannon Pirtle has been named Putnam County School System’s new VITAL School principal.
After ten years of serving both as assistant principal and principal at Upperman Middle School, Pirtle decided it was time for a change and was set to become the new assistant principal at Cane Creek Elementary School in fall 2021. However, VITAL school principal Robyn Nabors decided to return to the classroom as a science teacher at VITAL leaving the position to be filled.
“This was a position I had been interested in, but it was not available,” said Pirtle. “Robyn has done a fantastic job as principal. I am excited to work with all of the talented individuals on our VITAL team and also look forward to serving our community in the new role as VITAL School Principal. I am proud to be part of a wonderful forward-thinking team that strives to provide opportunities for our PCSS students and families. I would like to thank Mr. Sam Brooks and Mr. King for having faith in my abilities to serve in this position.”
Director of Schools Corby King said, “Mr. Pirtle has been an incredible asset to the Upperman Middle School, and he would have thrived at Cane Creek Elementary as well. He has the strengths to do well wherever he lands, and we are excited to have him serving as the new principal at VITAL.”
Cane Creek Elementary School has named Angela Webb, current assistant principal at Upperman Middle School, as the new assistant principal to serve alongside principal Rhonda Mahan.
