Dr. Kellen Conaway

I am honored to be back with my Buckhorn family as Principal of Buckhorn Middle School. This year marks my fourteenth year in education. For the first seven years of my career, I served as a high school history teacher before shifting my focus to becoming a school counselor at the elementary and middle school levels within the Madison County School System. Furthering my career in education, I have worked in Huntsville City Schools as an assistant principal and principal for the past six years. On a personal note, I am married with two beautiful children.

I love serving as a principal! My passion is developing positive relationships with everyone within the community, working with students as they grow, supporting teachers and staff to reach their greatest potential, strengthening a connection between school and home, and fostering a positive school culture. At our core, we know that the school-to-home partnership allows us to provide an extraordinary school experience for all students.

I look forward to meeting each of you and learning how I can best support you throughout this year and many more to come.
