Strahan Selected as Cravens Elementary Principal

Cortney-StrahanCortney StrahanOWENSBORO, Ky. (7/21/14) — Cortney Strahan has been chosen as the next principal of Cravens Elementary School to fill the position left vacant when Jimmy Lyddane resigned at the end of the school year to take another position.

Mrs. Strahan joined the Cravens staff two years ago as the school’s Curriculum Facilitator. She began her teaching career in the Owensboro Public Schools in July 2005 as a sixth grade teacher at Foust Elementary School, where she taught for two years. From July 2007 to July 2012, Mrs. Strahan taught third and forth grades at Newton Parrish Elementary School. She is a National Board Certified Teacher in the area of Early Middle Childhood English Language Arts. An Owensboro native, she holds a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership (Instructional Leadership: School Principal) from the University of the Cumberlands (2010) and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Brescia University (2005).

“I believe that Mrs. Strahan will do an outstanding job. She has exhibited her leadership skills not only in her responsibilities at Cravens, but also in her participation in a number of district leadership programs such as the OPS Leadership Academy and she has provided Literacy Professional Development for district elementary teachers,” said Dr. Nick Brake, Superintendent.

"I am thankful to the Site-Based Council and Dr. Brake for their hard work this summer and for providing me this opportunity. Cravens Elementary is a great school surrounded by a great community, and I am excited to be their new principal! In my time here as Curriculum Facilitator, the thing I've always loved most is that the students at Cravens love coming to school each day! It is special to be a part of that environment." said Mrs. Strahan.

The Cravens Elementary School Site-Based Decision-Making Council voted to hire Mrs. Strahan at a special-called meeting. Cravens Elementary School serves approximately 350 students in kindergarten through fourth grade.

The school is located at 2741 Cravens Avenue, Owensboro, Ky. 42301.
