GC Mathematics Alumnus Seeks to be a Role Model
Submitted on May 7, 2018
Seth Adam Faulkner, Class of 2004, has been named principal at Mason County High School in Maysville.
Faulkner graduated from MCHS in 2000 and then received his bachelor’s degree in mathematics at Georgetown College with a minor in sociology. After graduating, he returned to Mason County High and began teaching math.
He has since earned his master’s degree in instructional leadership and national board certification as a math teacher.
After nine years as a math teacher, Faulkner was named the school’s vice principal. He assumes his new leadership role on July 1.
“I’m humbled and very excited,” Faulkner told Christy Howell-Hoots of The Ledger Independent. “This community and school mean a lot to me. I want nothing but the best for the high school and the students.”
According to Faulkner, he did not always know he wanted to be an educator but began considering it right out of high school.
“After I graduated from high school, I realized how many teachers had made an impact on my life,” he said. “I knew I wanted to make that kind of impact on someone, too. But, when I became a teacher, I never thought I would become the assistant principal or principal.”
Faulkner said his goal as principal is to be a role model for all of his students.
“I want to be a good role model for my students and the young people outside this building,” he said.
