Brewton City Schools is looking for a new principal at T.R. Miller High School after current TRM Principal Ron Snell was named superintendent of Geneva City Schools.

Superintendent Kenneth Varner posted the job today, and said he had mixed feelings.

“I am so happy and proud of my friend Ron Snell, who has been named superintendent at Geneva City Schools,” he said. “He will do a great job for them there, just as he did as principal at TRM High School, which is why I am sad to see him go.”

Varner said that they cannot officially do anything until Snell actually resigns his position. He is currently waiting on the contract from Geneva City Schools.

Snell confirmed Thursday morning that his contract is pending approval at the Geneva City School board meeting on Oct. 15. He expects to start work a few days after that.

Snell was named principal of TRM in April 2016.

Snell spent four years as principal at Opp High School before coming to TRM.

He also has spent time as principal at Northview High School in Dothan, assistant principal at Slocomb High School, Samson High School, Samson Elementary and taught at Geneva County High School, Coffee Springs High School and Columbia High and Magnet schools.

“We are a few weeks out,” Varner said. “We are allowed to post. The job is posted and we expect job application to come in, and we will take them.”
