Chris Glass is no stranger to the Anderson County school system. Soon, he’ll likely be no stranger to most people in Anderson County.

Glass was tabbed to be the next principal of Anderson County High School by the ACHS Site-Based Decision Making Council Friday.

Glass is a 1993 ACHS graduate and he’s served as a teacher and administrator in the school system for nearly 13 years, most recently as associate principal at ACHS. He’s been serving as interim principal throughout the 2013-14 school year.

“We are confident that Mr. Glass’ focus on excellence, working with students, staff, parents and community will lead Anderson County High School to the next level of success,” said Anderson County Schools Superintendent Shelia Mitchell. “As superintendent, I look forward to continuing to work with Mr. Glass, supporting him as he works with the students, staff, parents and our community to ensure ACHS reaches peak performance. He is dedicated and committed to our students, staff, parents and community.”

Glass graduated from the University of Kentucky with a bachelor’s degree in secondary math education. He also has a master’s degree in secondary math education. He taught math at ACHS for nine years before taking the associate principal position 3 years ago.

Glass has indicated that his early goal is to increase community relations and to lead ACHS students and staff to top 10 percent in performance, according to an Anderson County Schools news release.
