Three new principals named in county

Llewellyn moves to Cresaptown, Crump at Mount Savage, Kenney at Washington Middle

CUMBERLAND — Allegany County Superintendent of Schools David Cox announced the appointment of three new principals for the upcoming school year Thursday.

Scott Llewellyn will replace retiring Principal Roxanne Reuse at Cresaptown Elementary School; Martin Crump will replace retiring Principal Gary Llewellyn at Mount Savage School; and Kendra Kenney will replace Kim Green at Washington Middle School.  Green accepted the position of chief academic officer at the Allegany County Board of Education earlier this year.       

“I am pleased to announce the appointments of Mr. Crump, Mr. Llewellyn and Mrs. Kenney to these key instructional leadership roles. To a person, they are seasoned and skilled professionals who are ready to lead the respective school communities forward to the next levels of achievement,” said Cox.

Llewellyn received both his bachelor of science and master of education degrees from Frostburg State University. He began his career teaching first grade at Mount Savage School in 1997, where he remained until 2002. From 2002 until 2005, he taught fifth grade at Westernport Elementary School. He then became a coordinating teacher at Cash Valley Elementary School for one year before becoming the assistant principal at South Penn Elementary School. Since 2009, he has been the principal at Northeast Elementary School.

“I will certainly miss all of the staff, students, parents and others in the Northeast Elementary School community that made it such a wonderful place to work,” he said. “I am excited to develop new relationships with the Cresaptown Elementary School community and to work with them to provide quality education for the Cresaptown students.”

Kenney graduated with a bachelor of science degree in 1992 and a master of education degree in 1997, both from FSU. She held the position of special education teacher at Braddock Middle School first and then at Washington Middle School from 1997-2003. She then became the administrative assistant at Washington and then assistant principal, a position she held until 2010. Kenney has served as the assistant principal at Fort Hill High School since 2010.  

“I am very excited about returning to Washington Middle School,” said Kenney.  “I look forward to working with the staff, students, parents and community.  I am committed to ensuring our students continue to make progress and get the best educations they can."  

Crump received both his bachelor of science degree and his master of education degree from FSU in 1980 and 1990, respectively. He worked as a music resource teacher from 1982-1986. Crump then became the music/band teacher at Beall High School where he remained until 1996 before accepting the position of assistant principal at Washington Middle School. In 1999, he became the assistant principal at Allegany High School, and from 2002-2007 he served as the principal at Westmar Middle School. Crump then accepted the position of supervisor of professional development and fine arts at the board’s central office.

“I am extremely pleased for the opportunity to return to school-based administration and to make that return at Mount Savage School,” he said. “Mount Savage has a dedicated staff, outstanding students and supportive parents and school community partners.”

All three new principals will assume their roles effective July 1 and their current positions will be posted in the near future.
