Al Conley has been named principal of Minshew Elementary, and the McKinney ISD Board of Trustees approved the decision at a special session on Tuesday morning. The new assignment is a sort of homecoming for the ten-year veteran of McKinney ISD; he served at Minshew as assistant principal from 2007 to 2012.
“Al Conley has proven himself to be a great campus leader,” said McKinney ISD Superintendent Dr. J.D. Kennedy. “He served at Minshew several years previously as an assistant principal, and he has earned this opportunity to serve as principal at Minshew Elementary. I look forward to seeing great things from Al and new assistant principal Inetra Nelson who is coming to Minshew from Eddins Elementary.”
Conley began his career as an elementary educator in 1999 and joined McKinney ISD in 2003 as a fifth grader teacher at Webb Elementary. In 2007, Conley was named assistant principal at Minshew Elementary where he served until 2012. For 2012-2013, he served as an assistant principal at Malvern Elementary.
Conley earned a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Ohio Wesleyan University and Master of Science in Educational Administration from the University of North Texas.
“I am honored to be named principal of Minshew Elementary and to have Inetra Nelson join the leadership team,” said Conley.
