Mrs. Ray, Principal

  • I am so excited to be given the opportunity to serve as the Saks Elementary principal!  My husband, LP, and I have two wonderful children, Gracie and Coleman. 

    I have worked in the Calhoun County School System for the past 17 years.  Initially, I taught 3rd and 5th grades at White Plains Elementary and Middle Schools.  I then started my administration experience as Assistant Principal at Weaver Elementary and a short time at Alexandria Elementary. I began as principal at Saks Elementary in 2016 and it's SO GREAT to be a Saks Wildcat!

    My goal is to serve as support to our teachers and parents as we work together in helping our children to become successful lifelong learners!  I look forward to an awesome year ahead!  Thank you for sharing your children with us!

  • My name is Karri Findley, and I am truly honored to be going into my 16th year as your assistant principal.  I have been married for almost 29 years to Chris Findley, and I have 3 beautiful children named Leyden, Lauren, and Landon.  Leyden is 24 years old and loves to hunt and fish.  Lauren is 22 years old and is at JSU, following in my footsteps to become a collaborative teacher.  Landon is 22 years old and blessed me with a grandaughter who is now 4.  Both of my boys work at Super Valu (UNFI).

    I attended college at JSU where I graduated with an Educational Specialist Degree in Administration. My hobbies include camping, shopping, and spending quality time with my family.

    I am very excited about this upcoming school year.  I know great things are in store for everyone!!

    Go Wildcats!!! #WildcatStrong
