Roy earned a bachelor’s degree in secondary English education from the University of Kentucky and master’s degrees in secondary education and education administration from Murray State University. He also earned principal certification and endorsements in school safety, supervisor of instruction, school superintendent and director of pupil personnel from MSU.

He is also an ordained deacon and director of music at Dixon General Baptist Church.
Assistant Superintendent of Instruction DeDe Ashby thanked the James Madison SBDM Council members for their dedication through the principal selection process.
