Assistant Principals Announced for 2018-2019 School Year

Sycamore Community Schools is excited to announce the appointment of two new assistant principals for the 2018-2019 school year.

Mrs. Jenny Ament will join the administrative team at Blue Ash Elementary. Ament comes to the Sycamore Family from Lakota Local Schools, where she has served for the past five years as an elementary teacher and an interim assistant principal. Most recently, Ament served as interim assistant principal at Cherokee Elementary.

“Blue Ash Elementary deserves the best, and we believe we have found that in Jenny Ament,” said Leslie Combs, Blue Ash Elementary principal. “With her extensive and varied background in education, I know that she will be a great addition to an already amazing group.”

Ament has sixteen years of classroom experience, teaching fifth grade at Adena Elementary, fourth grade at Hopewell Elementary, seventh grade at Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow Online Charter School, and first and second grade at Fairfield East Elementary.

She received her Masters in Educational Leadership from Concordia University and her Principal’s Licensure from the University of Cincinnati. Ament graduated from Sycamore High School in 1996.

“I have been an Aviator since second grade. It has always been a dream of mine to return to this extraordinary district,” said Ament.

Ament will replace Monya Jones, who resigned in June to pursue a career outside of education.

The district has also named Mr. Ron Brooks as interim assistant principal at Sycamore Junior High School for the 2018-2019 school year. Brooks will replace George Sturgeon who has accepted a principal position at Bethel Tate High School.

Brooks retired as principal of Maple Dale Elementary in 2016 after more than four decades of service to Sycamore Community Schools.
