Bardstown City Schools is proud to announce Brad Hill as the new assistant principal at Bardstown High School.
Hill, who marks his 17th year in education this school year, transitions into the role after serving as health and physical education teacher and athletic director at Bardstown Middle. Hill began his career in education at Bardstown High in 2007 where he taught physical education and health courses for freshmen. Outside of the classroom Hill has served students through several coaching positions. Hill was an assistant coach for the Bardstown High School boys basketball team for seven seasons. Since 2014, he has served as head coach for the Bardstown Middle School boys basketball team.
BHS has two assistant principals. Mr. Hill will focus on freshmen to ensure they successfully transition from Bardstown Middle to Bardstown High. He will work with freshmen and teachers of freshmen to help students understand expectations, learn the importance of earning credits, and get them involved in extracurricular activities. Additionally, Mr. Hill will assist teachers with closing any gaps in learning that a student may have and accelerate their learning to give them a great start at Bardstown High School.
“I am extremely excited to utilize the knowledge I have gained in teaching high school freshmen for 13 years, as well as the experience of working at BMS, to help freshmen succeed in their first year of high school,” said Hill. “With familiarity of both BHS and BMS I am confident that the relationships I have established at both schools will assist me in the ability to bridge the gap between eighth grade promotion and the completion of a successful ninth grade year.”
Hill earned a Bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and health promotion education from the University of Kentucky and a Masters of Arts in administration from University of the Cumberlands. He earned his Rank I in director of pupil personnel from University of the Cumberlands. Currently, Hill is serving as assistant principal during the morning and continuing to teach middle school health and physical education in the afternoons. Hill will make a full transition to the assistant principal role once a new health and physical education teacher has been hired at the middle school.
