• Hello, my name is Mrs. Vanessa Clay. I am the principal of one of the greatest schools around! I recently completed my twenty-fourth year as an educator. I taught kindergarten grades 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 have just completed my eighth year as the principal at Buhl Elementary.

    I have been married for almost 28 years to Thomas Clay. Together we have three children. Andrew is 22, Nate is 20, and Hannah is 19.  My children are the greatest gifts I have been given.  My son Nathanael will be getting married August 6th of this year to Bailey. So, I will be gaining a daughter! We are so blessed. We enjoy spending time with family, 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!
