LOGANVILLE, Ga. — Covenant Christian Academy has named a new principal for the 2019-20 school year.
After 25 years as principal, Covenant’s founder, Emmaline McKinnon, will be passing the torch to Lou Reynolds, a former Gwinnett County Public Schools Administrator and Teacher of the Year.
Reynolds holds a Bachelor of Science in mathematics and a Master of Education, and is certified by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. He has worked as a teacher and administrator in both New York and Georgia and holds educational leadership certifications in 6-12 mathematics, 6-8 social studies and 7-12 mathematics.
After moving to Georgia, Reynolds joined the faculty at McConnell Middle School. From 2007 to 2017, he was a lead administrator for Gwinnett County Public Schools, serving as director of mathematics and special education. In 2011, he was McConnell Middle School’s Teacher of the Year and went on to become a Gwinnett County Teacher of the Year semifinalist.
“I believe Christian education is vitally important to equipping, educating and evangelizing the next generation of leaders for Christ,” Reynolds said.
“This responsibility is something that I take very seriously and will work to be an example of Christ to all members of our diverse community.” He also feels strongly that Covenant offers something people are looking for — community.
“Covenant is more than just a great school, it is a wonderful family atmosphere.”
