Franklin special school district officials announced on Tuesday that Alisha Erickson has been named the new principal of Poplar Grove Elementary School.
Erickson, who prior to accepting the position was assistant principal at Moore Elementary School, replaces Principal Lee Kirkpatrick who has accepted another position within the district.
“I am very familiar with the tradition of excellence that Poplar Grove embodies and I am thrilled to be a part of the Poplar Grove school community,” Erickson said. “I am excited to meet our amazing students, work with our supportive parent community, and get to know the dedicated faculty and staff I have heard so much about.”
Erickson received her bachelor's degree from Middle Tennessee State University, as well as master's degrees from Tennessee State University and Trevecca Nazarene University.
