CCMS welcomes new principal

Calloway County Middle School has announced David Carmichael as the school’s new principal for the 24-25 school year. Carmichael will replace Jodi Butler, who is retiring in June.

Carmichael has been the school’s assistant principal for two years. Before joining CCMS, Carmichael was the principal of Todd County Middle School for four years after serving as a music teacher there for ten years. 

Carmichael has received a bachelor’s degree from Murray State University and a master’s degree from Austin Peay State University. He achieved his principal certification from Western Kentucky University.

“I am so very humbled and grateful for this opportunity,” said Carmichael. “I have been blessed to work alongside and learn from Mrs. Butler and the some of the best teachers and staff in the state for these last two years, and look forward to continuing to build upon the successes we have shared as we work to prepare our students for their futures. I appreciate Mr. Settle and interview committee’s confidence in me, and look forward to the opportunity to help our school continue to excel.”

“Mr. Carmichael has shown in his time in our district that he is a strong leader,” said Superintendent Tres Settle. “I know he will continue to do great things at CCMS, and I am excited about what he will bring to the school.”

Carmichael and his wife Elizabeth have three daughters: Norah, Marian, and Tessa.

He will officially begin as principal on July 1.
