The Logan County Board of Education officially hired Paul M. Mullins to be the next superintendent of the school district.
Mullins, who has been serving as the superintendent of the Garrard County school system since 2013, had previously been a principal in Logan County. He was the principal at Lewisburg from 2000-2004.
In all, Mullins has 22 years of experience in education. He has also worked as the principal of Larue County High School (2005-2013), principal of Caverna High School (2004-2005), assistant principal and athletic director of Nicholas County High School (1999-2000), teacher in Elizabethtown (1995-2000) and teacher in Hardin County (1994-1995).

Mullins is married to Tonda, and they have three sons, Christian, a senior at Western Kentucky University, and twins Dylan and Matthew, both juniors in high school. The Mullins family plan to move to Logan County in the near future.
Mullins received a four-year contract from the Logan County school board to serve as the next superintendent.
He replaces Dr. Kevin Hub, who resigned after two years on the job to take the superintendent position at Scott County schools. Hub announced his resignation in early March and his last day working for the district will be June 30.
Mullins was chosen from a final group of seven candidates, who were each interviewed by the board.
Some 19 people expressed interest in the job with 12 actually turning in a completed application.
Three of the finalists were currently Kentucky superintendents, two were central office employees (one was local and the other was not), one high school principal and one minority superintendent candidate.
