MOUNTAIN CITY — When school resumes in August, students at Johnson County High School will see many new faces in the hallways and some familiar faces in new roles, including that of Leon Henley, who begins his tenure as JCHS principal this year.

“I am excited and honored to be serving as the principal at JCHS,” Henley says. “I have a lot of pride in our school and community.” Henley relates he wants the students at JCHS to have the confidence that they can pursue any career or college they desire when they leave the hill.

The Johnson County School Board approved Henley’s appointment to his new role in April. He succeeds Lisa Throop, who retired at the end of the 2018-2019 school year after 30 years with the district. More about Henley from our partners at The Tomahawk.
