On Monday evening, May 9th, our Board of Trustees unanimously approved Mr. Patrick Holladay as the new principal of Jack D. Johnson Elementary School. Mr. Holladay has served the last 6 years in Mansfield ISD as an assistant principal at the intermediate and elementary school levels.

“Mr. Holladay is a great addition to our team at Johnson Elementary, our oldest and largest elementary school within Carroll ISD,” said Superintendent Dr. Lane Ledbetter. “He brings a wealth of relational experience both as a solutions-oriented and collaborative leader, and also as a long-time teacher well versed in best practices of instruction.”

We invite you to a meet-and-greet for Mr. Holladay to be held at Johnson Elementary on Tuesday, May 24th at 4:30 pm.
