Newly Appointed Mill Creek Elementary School Principal to Attend NABC Luncheon
Julie Sparrow will be in attendance to receive check donation from Williamson County Chamber Foundation
FRANKLIN, TN– Edmonson Elementary Principal Julie Sparrow has been named the new principal of Mill Creek Elementary School, a new school being constructed in Nolensville and slated to open fall 2016. Williamson County Schools Superintendent Dr. Mike Looney made the announcement Oct. 14.
Sparrow is confirmed to attend today’s Nolensville Area Business Council (NABC) luncheon at 11 a.m. at the Providence Baptist Fellowship Church, 1668 Sunset Rd. in Brentwood, where she will receive a check donation on behalf of Middle Creek Elementary School from the Williamson County Chamber Foundation.
All three schools–including Nolensville High and Middle Creek Middle–will receive the former Nolensville Chamber of Commerce’s remaining operating funds, which amount to $14,000. The elementary and middle schools will receive $3,000 each, and the high school will receive $8,000.
Sparrow will not serve on the program’s panel that will include newly appointed principals Bill Harlin (Nolensville High) and Kari Miller (Mill Creek Middle). Also serving on the panel will be WCS Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Schools Denise Goodwin. Questions for the panel will be centered on the vision each principal will have for their respective schools.
“Julie has been a member of the Nolensville community for over a decade,” said Dr. Looney in a press release. “She is also a proven education leader, so that combination made her a perfect fit to open Mill Creek.”
Sparrow began her teaching career in 1998 at Scales Elementary. She served as assistant principal at Edmondson and Lipscomb elementary schools for five years before being named principal at Edmondson in 2008.
Sparrow holds a Bachelor of Science degree in interdisciplinary studies and a Master’s in Administration from Middle Tennessee State University. She has been a member of the Nolensville community since 2003.
She will begin her new role on January 1, 2016.
