Rutherford County Schools Director Dr. James “Jimmy” Sullivan has appointed Nicole Stirbens as principal of Daniel-McKee Alternative School.

Currently the school’s assistant principal, Stirbens succeeds Dr. Diana Brown, who plans to retire at the end of the current school year.

“She has been an administrator in both Rutherford and Sumner County and has been successful as a classroom teacher, exploratory teacher, assistant principal, and advocate for alternative education,” Sullivan said of Stirbens. “I look forward to the positive impact she will make in working with some of our most at-risk students in this new leadership role.”

Stirbens became Daniel-McKee’s assistant principal in the fall of 2020.

“Dr. Brown and I have worked together to create a positive culture. I want to continue to build on that,” Stirbens said. “Making sure we have good relationships with our students and parents and our students’ home schools is at the foundation of everything we do. I want to make sure we continue to provide support to every child to reach their potential.”
