HEND COUNTY SCHOOL2 300HENDERSON, Ky. (5/6/14) — At a special called meeting of the Henderson County Board of Education Monday, May 5, 2014, the Henderson County Board of Education, with consultation from the Kentucky School Boards Association, has named Marganna K. Stanley as Superintendent of Henderson County Schools.

Mrs. Stanley will assume the duties as Superintendent of Henderson County Schools effective July 1, 2014.

Marganna Stanley brings to the education field a variety of successful educational experiences. She began her professional career in 1990 at Cairo Elementary teaching fifth grade and then a first, second, and third grade multi-age classroom. After earning her Master’s Degree from Indiana State University she moved to the Henderson County Schools Central Office as a Student Assistance Coordinator and within four years was elevated to Director of Student Programs. She completed her Rank I Certification for Elementary Principal, Director of Pupil Personnel, Instructional Supervision, Level II, and School Superintendent through Western Kentucky University. In 2005 she accepted the appointment of Principal at A.B. Chandler

Elementary School, and then in 2008, she was selected as the Assistant Superintendent of Administration for Henderson County Schools. Her 24 year commitment to Henderson County Schools has reached and influenced many students and staff to high levels of success.

A strong advocate for children, Mrs. Stanley has served on a variety of community boards and as a member of organizations such as the CATCH program, Rotary Colonels 2 College, Chamber of Commerce, Audubon Education Council, JA Volunteer, and NWKF Education Rally. As a former Corydon City Councilwoman, she organized the first Happy Days Festival in Corydon in 1996. Her professional organization memberships include Kentucky Association for School Administrators and American Association for School Administrators.

By challenging those to embrace change to ensure our students are prepared and ready for the world they enter after high school, she remains a passionate believer in a high quality, world class education for all children.

Mrs. Stanley holds a strong belief in family, friends, and integrity which reflect the foundation of her core values. In her leisure time, she enjoys outdoor activities, reading and sports. She is married (25 years) to Rick Stanley who owns a successful auto mechanic shop in Corydon, Ky.

“There is no doubt in my mind that over the weekend I have redefined the word ‘excited.’ To say I am excited minimizes the excitement and passion I have for the Henderson County Schools. We are a great school district, with great staff and families, a supportive community, and phenomenal students. My commitment to you is to lead us from great to excellence, to a district of distinction. Our students deserve it, and you should expect it from us. I am confident and ready to lead to make that a reality as your next superintendent,” said Mrs. Stanley.

She can be reached at the Henderson County Board of Education at (270) 831-5000 or by email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
