Mr. Chad Kennedy, Assistant Principal

My name is Mr. Chad Kennedy, and I have been involved in education for around 14 years. I have also been working as an adjunct professor for Athens State University since 2008. This is my 3rd year at BMS and I have loved every minute so far!

I graduated from Sulligent High School in 1998. I then received my associate's degree from Bevill State in 2000 and ultimately obtained my bachelor's degree in elementary education from Athens State in 2005. While teaching, I continued my educational journey at the University of Alabama, receiving my master’s degree in elementary education/curriculum & instruction in 2007 and my education specialist degree in 2012. In January 2016, I entered the Samford University/Madison County cohort to study educational leadership and completed the program in December 2016. I hope to pursue my doctorate soon.

I have been married to my wife, Tiffany, for 11 years. She received her doctorate degree in physical therapy from UAB in 2006. We are blessed to have 2 sons that provide us with new adventures every day! Justin is 10 and Tyler is 6. Both are active in basketball, baseball and piano. My family and I enjoy traveling, going to the movies, hanging at the park, watching the Tide play, and developing our relationship with God. I also enjoy being alone with a good book such as Harry Potter or watching Game of Thrones.

I feel that BMS is a special place and I am thankful for this opportunity to serve the Buckhorn Community! If I can assist you in any way, please feel free to contact me.
