With the recent announcement that April Cox will be the new principal at Kilgore High School, a replacement for Cox would be needed at Kilgore Middle School.
KISD announced that replacement on Tuesday, and it will be Jennifer Gholson.
“I’m excited to lead KMS and build upon the excellent foundation that has already been established,” Gholson said, on the KMS Facebook page. “Our staff and students make KMS a truly great place to be an instructional leader. I look forward to leading our campus and keeping us moving forward.”
Gholson fills the shoes of Cox, who was KMS principal for nine years. Cox became principal at KHS when former principal Charles Presley accepted a new position of director of security and emergency management at the KISD administration.
Gholson most recently was the assistant principal for seventh grade at KMS.
