Our new director at the Tech, Joey Carpenter, joins us from Grenada Career and Technical Center where he served as director for two years. A native of Carrollton, MS, Mr. Carpenter has been an educator for 18 years. Beginning his career as a teacher and coach, Mr. Carpenter then became an administrator, serving as an assistant principal at the elementary, middle school, and high school level as well as principal at the high school level. Mr. Carpenter has served as assistant principal in both the Oxford and Lafayette County school districts.

According to Mr. Carpenter, the move just feels right. “Deciding to move back to Oxford and serving the students of Oxford and Lafayette school districts was right for my family in many ways”. Mr. Carpenter and in his wife Jill have been married for 11 years and are parents to Mady, Joe Hudson, Witt, and Ellie Beck.
