Erin Phillips

You may remember we reported to you last week that Shores was named deputy director of the school system and would be performing duties of deputy director and principal while a replacement was named.

New director of Schools Dr. Charles Lawson annonced the hiring of Phillips late Tuesday afternoon. Phillips was a frequent visitor to Coffee County during her time as a “Read to be Ready” consultant for the Tennessee Department of Education. She has previously served as a teacher, consultant and assistant principal.
