Marion Community Schools is pleased to announce the next principal of Marion High School: Lloyd Bryant.
Bryant, a Marion High School graduate, has experience in various educational leadership roles at District of Columbia Public Schools in Washington, D.C., and Indianapolis Public Schools. He has most recently served as an instructional leader at Prince George’s County Public Schools in the D.C. area.
“It feels great to be back in the community that I grew up in!” Bryant said. “Education is a tool that can transform families, and I am honored to serve as Principal of Marion High School. This is truly an honor and a dream to come home and support the Marion community.”
Bryant earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Hampton University in Virginia, and his Master’s in Educational Administration from Trinity University in Washington, D.C.
Marion Community Schools Superintendent Brad Lindsay said he looks to Bryant to continue the positive legacy that recently promoted Assistant Superintendent Keith Burke leaves at Marion High School.
“Mr. Burke has been a positive, productive, and relational Principal for Marion High School, and our team believes Mr. Bryant has the skills and experience to continue our upward momentum,” Dr. Lindsay said. “We welcome Principal Bryant, and we look forward to serving alongside him as he joins our outstanding team and helps us to advance our important mission to make better continuously happen for the students, staff, families, and community of Marion.”
Monday, July 12, will be Principal Bryant’s first official day. Assistant Superintendent Burke will continue to help provide for a smooth transition between now and then.
