Benji Mattingly has been selected to lead Lebanon Elementary School as its next principal.
“I’m excited about this new adventure, this new challenge,” Mattingly said. “I’m excited to come in and work with the students, staff and parents and continue to make LES a great school.”
Mattingly, who has worked as a teacher and an administrator in the district before, said his focus will be on building positive relationships.
“One thing I’m most passionate about is building relationships and making sure that people understand that I’m going to be there for them. And to figure out what we need to do to help their kids,” he said. “As a leader I plan on being a relationship-builder and letting people understand the importance of being there for each other and working together as a family.”
