Greg Farley, who has taught math and coached numerous sports at Lawrence High School over the past 23 years, has been selected as the school’s new assistant principal, according to a news release from the district Thursday.

Principal Jessica Bassett announced that Farley’s new role would be effective July 1, pending school board approval.

“Greg is definitely the right fit for our team. He not only provides the continuity of a familiar face but also a strong voice for what is good for students and the belief that all students can learn at high levels with appropriate support,” Bassett said in the release. “Although he will be missed in the classroom, he will be able to share techniques and solutions to help both students and staff to improve.”

Farley first joined the district in 1994 as a math teacher at West Middle School. The next year, he transferred to LHS, where he has taught numerous levels of math courses. He has also served as an assistant football, tennis, and track coach, and head bowling coach, according to the release.

“I am excited about the opportunity to continue to serve the students of Lawrence High School and the Chesty Lion community,” Farley said in the release. “It’s a great day to be a LION!”

Farley’s new position is “one of two LHS will fill after the district chose Dr. Quentin Rials and Dr. Jennifer Schmitt to serve as interim principals at West Middle School and Pinckney Elementary School, respectively,” according to the release.
