My name is David Sledd, and this is my 1st year as Principal at Sharp Middle School. I served as the Assistant Principal for the last 3 years. Prior to becoming an administrator here in Pendleton County, I was a math and science teacher and soccer coach in Scott County for 19 years. I taught 8th grade Math & Science at Georgetown Middle School, and was the head coach for the boys soccer teams at GMS and Scott County High School. I was even fortunate enough to be named Coach of the Year for the entire state in 2006 as my SCHS team wone the regular season state title. Although I taught both math and science, our students and staff can probably tell you that I have a passion for math, and I miss teaching it.
I have lived in Harrison County every since I graduated from UK. Although, I did have some previous familiarity with Pendleton County, as my wife's began her math teaching career at Pendleton County High School for 6 years, before switching to Harrison County High School where she is still the A.P.Calculus teacher. I have 2 boys, a 7th grader and a 9th grader in Harrison County Schools. They both keep us very busy with their involvement in soccer and basketball. I still coach my youngest son's select/ttravel soccer team (been doing that since they were 6 years old). I earned my bachelor's degree at the University of Kentucky, where I also played rugby for the university. I earned 2 different masters degrees from Georgetown College and the University of the Cumberlands.
My outside interests are varied, although the majority of my time and energy is spent on my family. I enjoy woodworking and other construction projects, playing golf, and following several other sports (especially UK basketball, as many of our students and staff could tell you) teams, and vacationing in the mountains or the beach.
I am very proud to be the principal at Sharp Middle School, and plan to finish my career in this position.
