Kelly Miler

Lincoln Trail Elementary School’s Site-Based Decision Making Council has selected Assistant Principal Kelly Miller to serve as the school’s next principal.   

“I’m truly excited and honored to be selected as principal,” Miller said. “Lincoln Trail has a true legacy of success in and out of the classroom.  Our staff is beyond exceptional.  Every staff member who works here is truly dedicated to student success.  They work hard to make sure students have all of the proper tools.  I look forward to being a part of the continued success and excellence at Lincoln Trail Elementary. ” 

She has been the assistant principal at LTES since 2014. She started her career in 2006 by teaching fifth-grade students at Rineyville Elementary School. In 2010, she started a four-year stint at Heartland Elementary School teaching fourth grade.  Miller was a member of the Heartland Site-Based Decision-Making Council and led several school initiatives and represented the school in district programs.

“Mrs. Miller will do a phenomenal job in her new role,” Hardin County Schools Superintendent Teresa Morgan said. “She has a tremendous passion for students.  She has made student-centered decisions in her time as assistant principal and will continue to do so in her new role.” 

“It is my goal to ensure that each child has access to and receives a quality education,” Miller said. “This can be achieved through a collaborative effort from students, parents, school staff, community members and other stakeholders.  Lincoln Trail Elementary is fortunate to receive strong support from all these groups.  It certainly is a great place to learn, work and grow.”   

She is a graduate of Central Hardin High School and Western Kentucky University.  She earned a Master of Arts degree in Exceptional Child Education and a Rank I Certificate in Administration from the University of the Cumberlands.  

Miller takes over after former LTES Principal Gena Jeffries became an instructional facilitator for the district.  Billy Coffey has served as the interim principal since September of last year.
