After an extensive search, Fayette County Public Schools Superintendent Demetrus Liggins has named Bryan Kennedy as the next principal for The Learning Center (TLC). “Bryan has the knowledge and expertise needed to support our students,” Liggins said. “I know he will lead with compassion and help more students find success both inside and outside of the classroom.”
Kennedy has 18 years of experience in education. He started his career as a math teacher at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, where he also served as the Extended School Services (ESS) coordinator and JV girls’ soccer coach. He joined the staff at TLC six years ago to teach math and environmental stewardship, then later served as academic dean and assistant principal before assuming the position of acting program director last year.
“I am honored and excited to serve students, families, and staff as the next principal at TLC,” Kennedy said. “We will continue to prepare life-ready students by addressing their unique academic and social-emotional needs.”
Before joining FCPS, Kennedy spent 11 years with the Upward Bound Program at Bluegrass Community and Technical College as a teacher and academic coordinator. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and a master’s degree in secondary math education, both from the University of Kentucky, and completed his Rank I, principal licensure program, and principal program II at Asbury University.
“I am pleased that Mr. Kennedy will continue to serve TLC as principal. His dedication, compassion, knowledge of the school, and work ethic make him a great candidate to build upon TLC’s success,” said Chris Salyers, the secondary programs support specialist for the district. “He and his team’s vision will launch TLC to new heights in the service of students as they ‘Seek, Seize, and Sustain’ life readiness.”
