The Cheatham County School District has named Dr. Melinda Broyles as the new Ashland City Elementary School principal.

Broyles, who has served as the assistant principal of ACES and Riverside Academy since 2016, will begin her new role on July 1.

She replaces Chip Roney, who recently resigned after leading ACES for the past six years.

Broyles began her career as an eighth-grade math teacher, however; she has also taught reading, algebra, geometry and statistics as well as research design and curriculum and instruction at Union University in Jackson.

Additionally, Broyles has been a high school assistant principal, high school supervisor and manager of the federal programs department for the Jackson-Madison County School District.

Before joining the ACES and Riverside Academy staff two years ago, she taught seventh-grade math at Sycamore Middle School.

Broyles said, “I am honored to be selected as the new principal of Ashland City Elementary School. As I said during our meet and greet, I am committed to the students, parents, faculty, staff and community of Ashland City Elementary School. I look forward to this new and exciting year as we embark on our journey toward our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) designation and becoming the best elementary school in Cheatham County.”

Director of Schools Dr. Cathy Beck said, “We’re pleased that an educator with Dr. Broyles’ experience will be leading Ashland City Elementary School. She brings with her a wide-range of experiences, which will benefit our students, staff, parents and community. She is a passionate leader who demonstrates a commitment to providing a caring and nurturing environment where student learning will continue to flourish.”

The search for a new assistant principal at Riverside Academy is ongoing.
