    Mrs. Vanessa Clay

    Hello, my name is Mrs. Vanessa Clay. I am the principal of one of the greatest schools around! I recently completed my twentieth in education.I taught grades kindergarten through fifth grade at Walker Elementary. I moved back to my hometown of Kennedy, Alabama and taught special education for five years at South Lamar School. I moved back to Walker Elementary as the guidance counselor. I was promoted to assistant principal at Walker. I just completed my fourth year as the principal at Buhl Elementary.

    I have been married for 25 years to Thomas Clay. Together we have three children. Andrew is 19, Nate is 17, and Hannah is 16.  Nate and Hannah attend Fayette County High Schooll. My children are the greatest gifts I have been given.  Thomas is the pastor at Triniy Church of God. We enjoy traveling, bowling, and going to the theater.

    The faculty/staff, students, parents, and community members are wonderful. I look forward to continually building a relationship with our feeder schools and being involved in our community. We are going to have a wonderful new school year!
