PHS Selects New Assistant Principal

Interim Superintendent Anna Shepherd announces Brandon Kidd is the new assistant principal for Prestonsburg High School. 

Interim Superintendent Shepherd comments, “We are excited to see Brandon use his leadership and coaching skills as he joins the Prestonsburg High School administrative team. The new PHS team is one to watch for the upcoming school year as I know they're going to do wonderful things for our students.” 

Brandon has been in education for 6 years. He began at Prestonsburg Elementary and taught there five years before moving to the role of assistant principal at Allen Elementary. Brandon has been coaching basketball for more than a decade and has spent the last four years heading up the Prestonsburg High School Girls Basketball team.

Kidd says, “I am very excited and thankful for this opportunity to join the PHS Blackcat family. This is an amazing staff and I’m eager to meet everyone and get started.” Kidd comments on why he wanted to move into administration saying,  “I’ve always wanted to be in a position to be able to make a positive impact on as many people's lives as possible and this role allows me the opportunity to continue to do that and really connect with the school as a whole. I am very excited to continue building my relationships with the amazing people in the Prestonsburg community.”


Kidd says, “I’m excited about my new role at PHS, but I will miss my Allen Elementary family. The entire staff at Allen is one big family and I am thankful to have been a part of it. I want to thank Kyle Shepherd, AES Principal, for giving me my first opportunity in administration and for his guidance this past year. I am happy to know that I can still be part of the students’ lives when they complete elementary and move to our high school.”

Brandon and his wife Amanda are both educators. Amanda is the guidance counselor at Duff-Allen Central Elementary. They have 2 children, Kylie who is 9 and Brayden who is 7. The Kidd family lives in Prestonsburg.
