Boles named new ECES principal

The Cheatham County School District has named Paul Boles as the new principal at East Cheatham Elementary School.

Boles replaces Wendy Cox, who has been named the district’s new supervisor of Human Resources, Student Services and Policy.

Boles, who has been an educator for 10 years, most recently served as the dean of students and Spanish teacher at East Nashville Magnet Middle School. He also taught Spanish in Giles County.

Before becoming an educator, Boles was a field quality engineer in the automotive industry.

He earned his bachelor’s degree from Middle Tennessee State University, master’s degree from Lipscomb University and EdS degree from MTSU.

Boles and his wife, Jaclyn, have two children, Madelyn and Tucker.

“I am extremely honored to have this opportunity to lead such an incredible school and serve alongside a wonderful faculty. East Cheatham has accomplished some spectacular things under Mrs. Cox's leadership and I'm excited to continue building on that success. I can't wait to get to know everyone, and I look forward to calling East Cheatham home for many years to come,” he said.
